Spring Tour

This past spring, our artists toured cities in Colorado and New Mexico, offering free performances for school children along with free public concerts featuring a new opera, UnShakeable, in commemoration of the Shakespeare 400 and composed by Joseph Illick with libretto by Andrea Fellows Walters. UnShakeable followed the story of Meridian, Jacquelyn Stucker soprano, and Wyatt, Samuel Schultz baritone, on a star-crossed journey guided by their wishing stars, with stage direction by Kathleen Clawson.
