In the backwoods of Tennessee, a beautiful young woman is accused of indecent behavior after she is discovered bathing naked in a stream. Will the charismatic traveling preacher who sets his sights on her soul be her salvation, or her downfall? Carlisle Floyd's all-American score, which beautifully evokes the work's rural Appalachian setting, "is unabashedly neo-Romantic" (The New York Times). UNI Opera Presents "Susannah" with the Northern Iowa Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Rebecca Burkhardt and directed by Mitra Sadeghpour. Sung in English with English Supertitles. These performances are ticketed. For tickets, call 319-273-4TIX.
