Blue Viola follows the journey of a priceless viola from its original owner to a junk dealer, who sees it as a lost treasure in need of rescue. But his girlfriend, Arnita, has other plans. Infused with the sounds and styles of the blues, this opera is a perfect match for our Memphis audience, and our performance is it's southern premiere!
