Do not miss this interpretation of famed American composer Gian Carlo Menotti’s 1950 powerful and universal opera, The Consul, directed by noted soprano Yolanda F. Johnson and producer/director Sonja Karslen. When the opera premiered in 1950, The New York Times hailed it as “a smash hit” and “an opera of eloquence, momentousness, and intensity of expression.” It is the story of John Sorel and his wife, Magda, and how he flees the secret police in an unnamed country to gain freedom in a new land. Nearly 70 years later, the words and music of The Consul ring just as true.
