Don't miss: Journey Opera North's bold inaugural production

Callie Cooper

Newly minted Twin Cities opera company Journey Opera North will be presenting Benjamin Britten’s The Rape of Lucretia for their inaugural stage production, September 6-8, 2019.

In a preview on Monday, the company showed an impressive cast of young local talent and a very thoughtful premise for the controversial show. The company has also included a violence and intimacy director in the production - a presence that, hopefully, will some day be a regular credit in programs.

As a special note, the company has included an aerial performer into the show, since the Minnsky Theatre venue is primarily known for burlesque performances. I am sure it will be an interesting production.
