Elizabeth Cree: February 10 - 18, 2018

A woman on trial for her husband’s death.

A Victorian music hall troupe that calls her family.

And an Inspector investigating a deadly spate of grisly murders.

The COT season continues with Elizabeth Cree, a world premiere co-production with Opera Philadelphia. Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning duo Kevin Puts and Mark Campbell, Elizabeth Cree is not to be missed.
