The goldenthroated movers and shakers of One Ounce Opera present the fifth year of this annual series
, showcasing four new micro-operas in one night
– and, for the first time, all four works performed on the showcase include a woman as either the composer or librettist. All of this year's works share a common theme – death – but the program is far from morbid. "Oh, there's ample humor in each piece," says OOO's Julie Fiore
, "and it's enough to keep you rolling for a good while." Find out what happens with a company of powerful voices in the darkness and the light, in the premieres of The Séance
, The Stranger
, Non Motus
, and Misfortune
Through Feb. 16. Fri.-Sat., 8pm; Sun., 2pm. $20.
