THREE WAY is a co-production with
America Opera Projects
The production of THREE WAY received funding from OPERA America's Opera Fund.
Nashville Opera’s most recent world premiere—the comic sensation Three Way—has the added luster of a New York premiere at the prestigious Brooklyn Academy of Music this June. Join us and our co-producer American Opera Projects for this auspicious occasion as our unique Nashville creation hits a national stage.
THREE WAY's three playful one-acts uncover some very private behavior with wit, poignance, and sparkling music! (Think Sex and the City meets The Twilight Zone.) THE COMPANION, SAFE WORD, and MASQUERADE explore the future of love, sex, and need with a clever balance of humor and drama. Their contemporary characters collide at the intersection of power and desire to reveal the true longings of the human heart, and the score is beguilingly melodic and every bit as complex as they are. Sexy, funny, and a little bit naughty, THREE WAY is a surprising theatrical experience not to be missed!
