What better way to herald Women’s History Month than by introducing a brand new opera to the world focusing on one of Dayton’s most illustrious but under-appreciated women?
Katharine Wright, sister of Wilbur and Orville Wright, will come alive in a fresh and innovative way, thanks to the collaboration of an all-female production team at Dayton Opera. The world premiere of “Finding Wright,” the first commissioned full-length opera in the history of the company, is being staged on Friday, Feb. 25 and Sunday, Feb. 27 at the Schuster Center. The opera will be sung in English with English subtitles.
