Event Program (PDF)

An hour long opera for voices and piano that only uses four pitches, and is full of variety, expression and hilarious to boot - too good to be true, right?  Not at all!  Tom Johnson’s The Four Note Opera has been an underground favorite since its premiere in 1972.  Supremely well-crafted for the vocalists and written in the minimalist style,  Johnson’s tale is a joyous and bouyant look at idosyncracies (!) of beloved genre of opera, as well as  the charming foibles of those who perform it.
