Main Street Opera presents Gian Carlo Menotti's The Consul

  • Bartlett Community Center 700 South Bartlett Road Bartlett, IL, 60103 United States (map)

One of the great American operas of the 20th century, this Pulitzer Prize-winning drama wowed Broadway audiences during its initial run with its haunting melodies and powerful arias.  Inspired by real-life events, Menotti spins a tragic tale of one woman’s struggle to flee a violent police state.     Performed today as we face a global refugee crisis, the Consul is as timely and heartbreaking in 2016 as it was at the height of the Cold War.
