"The Beasts," a new chamber opera with original libretto and music by David Anderegg, will be performed in a concert version (sung but not fully staged) at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 10, in the sanctuary of Trinity Church.
A suggested donation of $15 will support the opera’s production costs.
"The Beasts" features the men’s a cappella group, Quintessential; soprano Nellie Rustick; Courtney Getzin, violin; Eric Martin, viola; and Richard Mickey, cello. The opera will be conducted by Chris Clark.
The opera tells the story of a Joseph, a young man who, because of past losses, struggles to find any joy in Christmas.
Although the opera features talking animals, parents are advised that the opera contains material which might be upsetting to children under 12.
