Aired on Thursday, January 8th.

This coming weekend, on both Saturday the 10th and Sunday the 11th, Tulsa Opera will present Tulsa Youth Opera’s production of composer Susan Kander's "The Giver." This piece, as noted at the Tulsa Opera website, is "an opera for young people based on the bestselling novel by Lois Lowry. 'The Giver' tells the story of a seemingly utopian society free from pain or strife, but also devoid of color and memory. When Jonas is selected to receive the community’s ancient memories, utopia is revealed as dystopia and his carefully ordered world begins to unravel. 'The Giver' is performed by more than 30 members of Tulsa Youth Opera, along with Tulsa Opera Studio Artists and the Tulsa Opera Orchestra." Kander is our guest on ST today; she's an accomplished playwright and composer based in New York City. For tickets and more info, please call Tulsa Opera directly at 918-587-4811.
