Coker’s Opera Workshop presents An Embarrassing Position: An Opera in One Act by American composer Dan Shore.
Based on a sketch by Kate Chopin, this lighthearted opera takes place in New Orleans in the 1890s. Willis Parkham is a young bachelor running for political office. Late one night after a so-called “political meeting,” Eva Delvigné, the lovely and naïve daughter of a family friend, unexpectedly announces herself. Before Mr. Parkham can figure out what to do, there is another knock at the door, but this time it’s—gasp!—June Jinkins, the gossip columnist for the New Orleans Times-Democrat! Come find out why this piece won the National Opera Association Chamber Opera Competition (2013). Join us for performances in a creative and intimate setting at Drengaelen on Friday, 11/18 at 7:30 pm and Saturday, 11/19 at 2:30pm.Your continued support for Coker University, and the arts is greatly appreciated.
