SNU Opera:

An opera by Copland set in the 1930s and 40s called THE TENDER LAND will be presented by the Southern Nazarene University School of Music, Tuesday, October 23 and Thursday, October 25 at 7:30 pm in Cantrell Music Hall on the campus of SNU.

THE TENDER LAND, an American opera in three acts, is the story of a rural family in the 1930s whose eldest daughter will be the first family member to graduate from high school. She has questions about her future that are a puzzle to her family. These questions cause misunderstandings and confusion as the daughter tries to find her life's direction.

The cast, made up of SNU students, is co-directed by Cherrie Hampton and Krista Miller. The Choral Master for this production is Dr. Brent Ballweg, School of Music professor. Set design is by Scott Regester.

Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for SNU students, faculty and staff, and senior citizens. Tickets will be available at the door both nights of performance.
