Show Details

The University of Louisville
School of Music Opera Theatre presents
The Tender Land
By Aaron Copland

Copland’s first full-length opera, this bittersweet coming-of-age story set in America’s heartland during the Depression shows a young woman facing the agonizing choice between life, the family she has always known, and the dictates of her own heart.

Preceded by a performance of Copland's ​Appalachian Spring​ by members of the University Symphony Orchestra.

SCENE at the Center, our small plates eatery, offers bar and food service two hours prior to most performances in Whitney Hall and the Bomhard Theater. Kitchen service ends as the curtain rises, but beverage service will continue throughout the performances and extend through midnight on Friday and Saturday nights.
