The Copper Queen

Staged Premiere

Directed by: John de los Santos

Conducted by: Christy Lee


Produced by: Marble City Opera

Venue: Flying Anvil Theatre

Knoxville, TN



"In the past, although Marble City Opera has begrudgingly endured the inability to properly light its productions in the unusual alternative venues it selects, that wasn’t the case this time around. De los Santos and his lighting designer, Joshua Mullady, have created a minimal, but dramatically successful environment in the Flying Anvil Theatre space—white light clarity for the 2010 scenes and richly muted and dappled reds and golds for the period scenes. Such a vehicle as this terrific production of The Copper Queen and its moody tragedy really needs that kind of attention."-Alan Sherrod ArtsKnoxville
