The Santa Fe Opera (SFO) will offer a free performance of “Trinity”, an operetta about the birth of the atomic age on Saturday, April 28 at 6pm at TorC’s Civic Center. Commissioned for the SFO’s 50th anniversary, the short opera reflects the duality of the invention of “the bomb”, developed in New Mexico during World War II. While the invention of the atomic bomb definitively ended the war, saving many American lives, it also ushered in the Cold War and the arms race, which puts the whole of humanity at risk. Trinity offers both insight and hope.
Returning to Truth or Consequences as part of their 26th spring apprentice tour, this annual event offers upcoming SFO performers the opportunity to gain experience, while bringing a taste of high art to small and rural communities across New Mexico. The performance is sponsored by NM Arts and the Sierra County Arts Council (SCAC). Several local motels will offer special pricing on rooms for Opera night, including the Pelican Spa, the Rocket Inn, Riverbend Hot Springs, the Desert View Inn, and the Charles Motel.
The performance is free, and the SCAC is organizing a reception with the SFO artists immediately following the performance at Grapes Gallery, 407 Main Street, TorC. A $10 donation is requested. Enjoy complementary wine and finger food, with an opportunity to meet and mingle with the rising stars of the Santa Fe Opera. For more information call the SCAC 575-894-0615.
