The Happy-Absurd Meets the Sublime

Jul 25, 2011

Intimate Opera Pasadena’s Summer Young Artist Program presents Gilbert and Sullivan’s Trial by Jury and Puccini’s Suor Angelica preformed by a cast of emerging artists aged 16 to 28. The dual productions organized by IOP artistic director Stephanie Vlahos and funded by the Pasadena Showcase House for the Arts will juxtapose the simple divinity and pious devotion of Puccini’s piece with the fun-loving lightheartedness of Gilbert and Sullivan’s comedy, begetting a night of intriguing contrasts at the historic First Baptist Church in Pasadena.
