UT Opera Theatre presents Allen Shearer’s Middlemarch in Spring. at The Bijou Theatre Fri. Apr. 13, 14, 15

April 13 @ 8:00 pm - April 15 @ 2:30 pm

In this stirring yet often lighthearted opera, George Eliot’s towering literary work comes to life with powerful imagery and compelling music. One unforgettable spring in the town of Middlemarch, passionate love and political upheaval are brewing. Dorothea Brooke, an idealistic woman who hopes to improve the world, naively marries the scholar Casaubon for his “great mind” and is devastated when he turns out to be cold, shallow and not very bright. But in spring, anything can happen. Could Dorothea have a second chance at happiness with the dashing, eminently unsuitable Will Ladislaw? The odds are stacked against her.

**The Saturday, April 14 evening performance will include a pre-opera discussion with the composer and librettist from 7 – 7:40 p.m. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. for this 1-time event.
