Little Women With Sopranos And Altos

May 2, 2016

Louisa May Alcott lit a fire that still burns when she wrote "Little Women" a century and a half ago.  Who knew people were still clamoring to read the book today?

  Or that people love it enough to transform it into different art forms?  Case in point: Eugene Opera's presentation of "Little Women" as an opera, written in 1998 by Mark Adamo.  

The opera will be presented May 14-15, but the University of Oregon's Kathleen O'Fallon will talk about the story's endurance tonight (May 3) at the Eugene Library.  Dr. O'Fallon joins us with a brief preview.
