The Meadows Opera Theatre will be performing “Susannah” by Carlisle Floyd from Thursday, February 5th until Sunday, February 8th. Click here for more information about this event.
The plague of religious fundamentalism, intolerance, hypocrisy and prejudice rips through a backwoods community in rural Appalachia and the fate of the naïve, young town beauty hangs in the balance. Will the new, charismatic reverend be able to save Susannah’s soul, or will he pull them both into a fiery hell? Floyd’s powerful American masterpiece weaves together folk tunes, country hymns, lush lyricism and haunting, ravishing melodies in this timeless tale of desire, lust, seduction and revenge.
If you can’t get enough of “Susannah,” come by Hamon to listen to one of the audio recordings of the opera that we hold.
