Hired by a mysterious guardian, a young governess travels to an isolated English estate to care for two orphaned children. Once she arrives, she slowly begins to feel that things may not be what they appear. Is there something sinister afoot? Could it be the supernatural? Or is it simply the product of her overactive imagination? Britten’s seductive, luminous score builds delicious tension to create one of opera’s greatest ghost stories.Music by Benjamin Britten Based on the novella by Henry JamesDirected by John Hoomes Sung in English with projected English titlesSource: Nashville Opera

Notes of a Native Song: Stew and Heidi @ OZ
Jan 31 @ 8:00 pm – 8:00 pm

The Tony and Obie Award-winning creators of the Spike Lee-filmed Broadway hit Passing Strange collaborate again on this acclaimed theatrical music event Notes of a Native Song. Named for James Baldwin’s 1955 collection of essays on being Black in America, Notes of a Native Son, this show imagines Baldwin as a rock star hero — a flawed essential visionary who transforms how we see ourselves. Stew, Heidi, and their mighty band The Negro Problem use Baldwin’s work to examine lingering civil rights hardships through a rapturous mix of rock, jazz, and soul.Source: Oz Arts Press Release
