This fun, clever and tuneful opera will be seen and heard (world premiere!)
Thursday January 26, 2012, 8:00pm at the Longy School of Music, Cambridge MA www.longy.edu
Saturday February 4 at 4:00pm at St. John’s Church in Jamaica Plain, MA www.jpconcerts.org
and Saturday May 19 in Shirley MA at the Shirley Meeting House www.shirleymeetinghouse.org
Francine Trester wrote the words and music. A charming story about a woman who has too many bunnies and the officer of the law sent to shut her down. Their musical sparring touches upon a variety of themes: individual freedom, civil disobedience, and the nature of love itself. Appropriate for adults and children, approximately 1 hour long. www.FrancineTrester.com
I play the rather, um, eccentric woman with the bunnies; Donald Wilkinson is Officer O’Hare (get it?) and our orchestra is the Mockingbird Trio with Fran Trester on violin, Scott Woolweaver on viola and John McDonald at the piano.
