Ned Roremís intimate chamber opera was first performed at Indiana University on 24 February, 2006. The libretto, by J.D. McClatchy, is based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning and widely admired play of the same name by Thornton Wilder and depicts life and events in a small town, Groverís Corners, New Hampshire. Roremís music is lyrical and approachable and will hold an immediate appeal for the audience.

The performance on 29 May will be preceded by a free performance of opera arias and overtures by Wind, Brass and Percussion students in the foyer at 6pm.
