Why stop at one opera when you can watch two? These one-act shows, featuring young casts drawn from the Bonfils-Stanton Foundation Artists Training Program, both offer a contemporary American take on the medium. The first (the sole opera by 20th-century composer Amy Beach) is a New Orleans–set tale of forbidden love between a noblewoman and a pirate, while the second, a musical parody of a 1950s soap opera, is a lesser-known work of Douglas Moore, the composer of the Colorado-inspired opera The Ballad of Baby Doe.
