West Michigan Opera Projects presents “Susannah”

SUSANNAH: March Art Hop

SUSANNAH, one of America’s most popular operas, will be presented at First Presbyterian Church on Friday, March 1 at 7:30 pm. The composer, Carlisle Floyd, is the son of a Mennonite preacher and these hymn tunes influenced his composition. The story is based on the Apocrypha’s “Susannah and the Elders” and is the story is of a woman standing up in the face of injustice and being shunned from her community.

The theme resonates as much today with the #metoo movement as it did when the story was written around 600 BCE. It is a moving story of human nature, and challenges the audience to make a difference in the way people are treated and accepted.

The cast includes Sarah Faasse, Trent Broussard, Jonathan Lovegrove, Keon Atkins, Ron Roys, Evan Snyder, Les Rowsey, Gaetan Gerville-Reache, Schyler Sheltown, Karen Albert, Elizabeth Hamm, and Karen Rowsey.

Accompanied is provided by Todd Wilkie, piano and Dr Joanna Steinhauser, violin.
