The Shepherd School Opera and The Shepherd School Chamber Orchestra present Susannah by American composer Carlisle Floyd. Written by Carlisle Floyd in 1954, Susannah is his best known opera. It is set against the backdrop of an impoverished rural Appalachian community. The story centers around an innocent girl from the small town of New Hope Valley in Tennessee who is wrongly accused of being a sinner by her fellow community members. The main question throughout the opera is: What happens when a community turns against someone as a result of an unjust accusation?

The performances will take place in Wortham Opera Theatre at the Shepherd School of Music.
