We’re building an opera team for the Olympics!

That’s right, Mixed Precipitation and the Dead Composers Society are teaming up to present TONYA and NANCY: THE OPERA.

Music by Abigail Al-Doory Cross, Libretto by Elizabeth Searle

The events of the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics and the knee clubbing scandle come to life as Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan become duelling American singing divas!

Lead Reddy and Meredith Cain-Nielsen

We’ll be previewing the show with brief interludes at the Art Shanties.  Here is a link to directions (it’s about 15 minutes from downtown Mpls).

Look for us Saturday January 30th at 11:30 and 12:30 and Sunday January 31st at 1:30 and 2:30.

Look for the shanty with the stocking cap!

Thanks to Julie Kesti and her partners at the Art Swap Shanty for offering to be our hosts!  Bring some art to share as well, and you can swap it for a fresh piece for your home.  To read about their awesome art sharing project, check out their blog.

Meredith Cain-Nielsen returns to take on the role of tough girl Tonya Harding.  She’ll contend with Leah Reddy as the prim Nancy Kerrigan.

Lauren Drasler, Jacob LaSota, Kitten Stoekler and Jason Vogen are featured in the cast.

Mike Meyer is our music director.  Scotty Reynolds is directing.

Thanks to Ty Sassman for these great photos.
