About the opera

LANGUAGE: English with English surtitles

"Mingling classical with blues and jazz, the music was robust and evocative, with homor and charm..." —D.C. Theatre Guide

Blue Viola follows the journey of a priceless viola from its orignal owner to a junk dealer, who sees it as a lost treasure in need of rescue. But his girlfriend, Anita, has other plans.
