A GRIMM AFFAIR PRESENTED
BY CIMARRON CIRCUIT OPERA
AND METRO LIBRARIES
By Nancy Condit
|Three Grimm's Fairy Tales to be performed.|
A Grimm Affair will be presented Sunday, October 6th, through Friday, the 11th by the Cimarron Circuit Opera Company and the Metropolitan Libraries at the libraries. "A Grimm Affair" is a comic piece by Dr. Glenn Winters of the Virginia Opera, which he based on three of Grimm's Fairy Tales – Dr. Know It All, Rumplestiltskin, and Cat and Mouse. The free comic operas are performed by the great voices of the opera company in the spirit of opera and the fall and Halloween season. The performances are for all ages.
“Cimarron Opera has combined familiar folk tales with great music and singing, with a touch of comedy,” said Metropolitan Library System Director of Outreach Services Dana Morrow, “to produce an introduction to opera that is a whole lot of fun."
The performances are also made possible by the Friends of the Metropolitan Library, the Oklahoma Arts Council, and the National Endowment For the Arts.
