About the Opera's History:
Opera Santa Barbara made operatic history when we commissioned the first and only opera to date of award-winning composer Stephen Schwartz, known for his Broadway powerhouses Wicked, Godspell, and Pippin.

Based on the novel by Mark McShane and the screenplay by Bryan Forbes, the opera played for three nights in September of 2009 at the recently renovated Granada Theatre. It has not been made available to the public here in Santa Barbara since then. Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see Séance on a Wet Afternoon.

About Séance:
A cunning plan and a burning desire for bonafide fame that only requires one little lie. What does the future hold? This opera will have you on the edge of your seat as the music, simultaneously powerful and melodic, takes you deep into the world of medium Myra Foster sung by soprano Lauren Flanigan. Aided by her reluctant but devoted husband Bill, sung by Kim Josephson, the drama unfolds to a devastating and unpredictable end. Tony-Award winning designer Heidi Ettinger’s marvel of a set almost steals the show from Stephen Schwartz’s brilliant score and story.
