Anthony Davis & Joan Ross Sorkin's The Reef

$10 student tickets are available. Call the box office at 212 501 3330.

The new opera by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Anthony Davis and librettist Joan Ross Sorkin – based on the Edith Wharton novel of the same name – tells the suspenseful story of a young widow and her former lover’s attempt to rekindle their romance. The tension is heightened in Davis and Sorkin’s retelling, which underscores the inequalities of race and social class on a sugar plantation on Martinique.  Berkshire Opera Festival is proud to present Act One of this two-act opera for the very first time in a workshop performance featuring current students and recent alumni of some of the area’s notable conservatories and music schools. The performance will be followed by a Q&A with the opera’s creators.
