IU Opera Theater presents THE TALE OF LADY THI KINH
by P.Q. Phan
From exotic Vietnam, a young girl—pursued for her beauty, despised for her goodness, forced to masquerade as a man—takes us on an incredible journey of intrigue, lust, deceit, and compassion to the ultimate destination—Nirvana—by making the ultimate sacrifice. A world premiere by Jacobs School faculty composer P. Q. Phan based on the ancient Vietnamese folk tale Our Benevolent Buddha Thị Kính.
Opera Insights pre-concert talk at 7pm.
