“Taking Up Serpents”

January 13 at 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

$35 to $45

An opera about snake-handling fundamentalist preachers? Sure, why not. Librettist Jerre Dye was inspired by his childhood growing up in an evangelical church in Mississippi, where parishioners would speak in tongues and writhe on the floor. We’re just hoping the reptile gets an aria. It ain’t over till the slithery creature sings.
