SALEM 1692 -- an operatic musical set in "interesting times"

We don't get too many operatic musicals based on the Salem Witch Trials. This is especially noteworthy because one of the librettists is my old mentor and friend, Fort Collins poet (and retired CSU prof) Bill Tremblay.

Here's more info on this production:

SALEM 1692 is an operatic musical, a love story in "interesting times." Young Margaret Scott arrives in Salem, hoping to start a new life. The people of Salem are welcoming, and she finds herself in a love triangle with Richard Saltonstal and Sheriff Corwin. Her new friendship with Bridget Bishop shows a fun side of Puritan life, but soon she learns that Salem is rife with tension when charges of witchcraft arise. This is one of America's most classic stories retold with gorgeous music.

Three performances at Bas Bleu Theatre -- January 4th, 5th, and 6th. Curtain rises at 7:30 pm (house opens at 7:00 pm)
