Each opera follows a different set of characters, ranging from fixtures in Memphis' collective consciousness to obscure incidents that will have you saying "Did that really happen in Memphis?" Join us for this musical exploration of our city on the bluff.

The operas of the Opera901 Showcase received funding from OPERA America's Opera Fund.
