Called “ebullient, grand and unusual” and “a high camp masterpiece” by critics, Four Saints in Three Acts changed American opera when it premiered in 1934. Set in 16th-century Spain, the playfully humorous Four Saints traces the lives of saints on Earth through a witty libretto by Gertrude Stein and a stunning score by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Virgil Thomson. Collaborating with director/choreographer Carl Flink and his award-winning Black Label Movement, VocalEssence takes up the challenge of this path-breaking and distinctly American opera to re-imagine it for the Goodale Theater in The Cowles Center for Dance & The Performing Arts. This wildly inventive masterwork will leave you with a smile on your face.

This show is 2 hours with a 15 minute intermisson.
