Chattanooga Times Free Press - ChattanoogaNow - - Front Page - STAFF RE­PORT Com­piled by Su­san Pierce.

Lee Univer­sity’s School of Mu­sic Opera Theatre will pre­sent two one-act op­eras in per­for­mances Fri­day, Feb. 28, through Mon­day, March 2, in Dixon Cen­ter, 1053 Church St., Cleveland, Ten­nessee.

Per­for­mances are sched­uled for 7:30 p.m. Fri­day, Satur­day and Mon­day, with a 3 p.m. mati­nee on Sun­day.

The singers will per­form Gian Carlo Menotti’s “The Old Maid and the Thief,” di­rected by James Daniel Frost, as­so­ci­ate pro­fes­sor of voice and di­rec­tor of Lee’s Opera Theatre, and Ralph Vaughan Wil­liams’ “Rid­ers to the Sea,” di­rected by James Daniel Frost II.

“Old Maid and the Thief” is a com­edy that ex­poses the gos­sip and se­crets of a seem­ingly quiet town and re­veals how sus­pi­cion, fear and the wrong cir­cum­stances can make reg­u­lar peo­ple turn dis­hon­est.

“Rid­ers to the Sea,” the J.M. Synge 1904 Ir­ish drama, de­picts the power of the sea and its dev­as­tat­ing ef­fects on an is­land com­mu­nity, tak­ing the lives of the men and leav­ing the women be­hind to grieve.
