Opera in Conversation – Opera and Our Community: Women’s Agency and Empowerment

February 15 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

What: Opera in Conversation – Opera and Our Community: Women’s Agency and Empowerment.
When: Wednesday, February 15th from 6p to 7p
Where: Benson Theater, 6054 Maple St., Omaha, Ne

Opera in Conversation is a series of three sessions surrounding Opera Omaha mainstage productions that features creatives, scholars, and other public figures.

These FREE events exist with a hope to foster cross-disciplinary exploration of art, big questions, and community connections. Discussions will explore creating Puccini’s one-act opera, Womens’ agency, and how this story connects to our now.

Join Opera Omaha on Wednesday, February 15 at the Benson Theatre for our second Suor Angelica Opera in Conversation.

Suor Angelica is a piece that, at its core, is about the ability for women to make their own choices. This Opera in Conversation will make connections between on women’s agency in the opera and our now, the categorization and (mis)representation of “good women” in art, and highlight opportunities to empower women and fight for agency in our community today.
