Riders of the Purple Sage: The Making of a Western Opera
- Filmed Performance
- Digital Ticket
Western cowboy culture and opera’s hallowed traditions converge to celebrate the collaborative power of art in this new documentary film. What begins as a challenge between a composer and his librettist evolves into a creative posse of artists, musicians, and singers sharing a singular vision. The power of Zane Grey's classic novel is reclaimed opening night in an opera that marries music theatre, cutting-edge stagecraft, and matinee heroes. Half of all proceeds benefit The Actors Fund, a national human services organization that supports everyone in the performing arts - onstage and off!
