Marble City Opera will present Ghosts of Crosstown by librettist Jerre Dye at Scruffy City Hall in Knoxville, Tennessee at 7:30pm on October 29, 2015, during National Opera Week.
This production will feature some of Knoxville’s favorite talent including bass-baritone, Brandon J. Gibson who will be singing a powerful opera from the cycle entitled Movin’ Up.
Ghosts of Crosstown is a cycle of four monodramas inspired by the 1927 Art Deco architecture of the Sears Crosstown Building in Memphis, Tennessee, and the ordinary lives of the people who worked and shopped there.
The librettist, Jerre Dye is the same for all pieces with different up and coming composers for each story.
Tickets are $20 for General admission, and $10 for students. Tickets can be purchased at the door on the night of the performance. Bar service will be offered before, during, and after the performance for all attendees.
Scruffy City Hall is located at 32 Market Square in downtown Knoxville.
