About

“Vinkensport, or The Finch Opera” plays off of a Belgian folk competition focused on who owns the most melodious bird in the town. What seems to be a rather simple competition actually sets the stage for a journey into the minds of the competitors and their struggles with deception, loneliness, and love.

Sung in English.

Approximate Running Time: 40 minutes.

Please be advised that there will be no late seating for this production. All performances will begin at the scheduled curtain time.
