Princess Sophia Opera Preview
Saturday, March 17, 2:00-3:30 pm, APK, Atrium
Orpheus Project (formerly known as “Opera to Go”) presents a free preview of the original opera about the S.S. Princess Sophia, which sank after running aground on Vanderbilt Reef on October 25, 1918, taking an estimated 350 lives with her. This uniquely Alaskan performance features music by Fairbanks composer Emerson Eads and libretto by Dave Hunsaker of Juneau. The full opera will premiere in Juneau in October 2018 for the 100th anniversary of the Princess Sophia disaster. For more information, visit www.orpheusproject.org.
