Behind the Opera: Riders of the Purple Sage (Tucson)

Western Cultural Festival
Monday, February 20, 2017 - 7:00pm (Tucson)

Arizona Opera’s first world-premiere will kick-off with a state-wide celebration of our Western heritage. Celebrate the West through art, film, story, and song and explore the land that shapes our past, present, and future.


Join us at the Tucson Jewish Community Center for the first event of the Western Cultural Festival! Learn  how our world-premiere, Riders of the Purple Sage, was brought to life by listening to a moderated discussion amongst the creative team of the opera. Audience Q & A will follow this lively discussion.
