AOP First Chance Presents Opera Adaptation Of A Thousand Splendid Suns At Hudson Area Library

Oct 26, 2017

On November 18, American Opera Projects (AOP) First Chance and the Hudson Area Library will present a staged reading of Act II of the new opera A Thousand Splendid Suns, by composer Sheila Silver and librettist Stephen Kitsakos. A Thousand Splendid Suns is scheduled for a World Premiere by the Seattle Opera in 2020 and a workshop performance of Act I was presented in New York last year at Trinity Church. The performance of Act II at Hudson Area Library in Hudson, NY will include an introduction before the action of the act begins.

Based on the international best-selling novel by Khaled Hosseini and set in Afghanistan from the mid-1970’s to the present era, A Thousand Splendid Suns is a universal story of love, passion, sacrifice and spiritual transcendence.
