How much do you know about “No man’s Land?” Or what Bohemians are? Or what a “demi-mondaine” is?
Crucial to the story-lines of Silent Night, La Boheme, and La Traviata, ignorance of these concepts will not spoil your enjoyment of these opera icons. In fact, learning about these terms during a performance or afterwards may increase your appreciation. The same can be said for Joel Puckett (music) and Eric Simonson’s (libretto) The Fix which receives its world-wide premiere by the Minnesota Opera company at the Ordway Theater on Saturday, March 16th (also March 19, 21, 23-24).
The Minnesota Opera is set to premiere The Fix, a new opera by composer Joel Puckett, librettist Eric Simonson, and conducted by Timothy Myers, based on a true story of the “Black Sox” scandal in 1919.
