    InsideOut of the Lunchbox - Nashville Opera's Susannah

      Set in rural Tennessee and rooted in Appalachian music, the opera tells the story of a young beauty intimidated and betrayed by narrow-minded townspeople. Jealousy leads to rumors, which leads to assault - giving Susannah no choice, but to defend herself.

    The opera was composed at the height of McCarthyism, premiering in 1955, and serves as a metaphor for paranoia and its dangerous repercussions. Cast members will perform selections of the beautiful and haunting songs, and panelists will discuss the themes of the opera and how they relate to our society today.

    This event will contain adult themes and mature conversation.
