Bend Woman Helps To Make New Opera A Reality

A dedicated group of Central Oregon artists is teaming up with some world-class singers to make history this weekend. For the first time ever, an original opera will make its world premiere right here in Bend at The Tower Theatre​.

But it might have never happened without the generosity of a local patron of the arts named Marjorie Carmen, who felt the story of “Via Lactea” deserved a worldwide audience.

Via Lactea: A New Opera in English – June 10-12, 2016​. Tickets available at The Tower Theatre.
