Dicapo-Opera-Theatre-Presents-THE-MARTYRS-World-Premiere-118-18-20010101

Dicapo Opera Theatre will present the world premiere of veteran American opera composer Thomas Pasatieri's The Martyrs with six performances beginning tonight, November 8, at 7:30 p.m.

Subsequent presentations take place Saturday and Sunday, November 10 and 11, Thursday and Friday, November 15 and 16, and Sunday, November 18. Thursday performances begin at 7:30 p.m., Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m., and the final performance on Sunday at 4 p.m.

Starring the Catherine Malfitano as Marianne and Zeffin Quinn Hollis as Percy, The Martyrs, with a libretto by Daphne Malfitano, tells the stories of two quintessentially American antiheroes, each seeking justice but vilified by their rural societies, forcing them to live-or die-as modern-day martyrs.

All performances are at Dicapo Opera Theatre, 184 East 76th Street at Lexington Avenue. Tickets, at $50, are available by calling Smarttix at 212-868-4444 or by visiting the Dicapo Web site at www.dicapo.com.
