JACKSON, Tenn. – March 26, 2002 – Union’s Opera Workshop will present an optional dinner theatre and the comic one-act opera “eve’s odds” Saturday, April 20 – Monday, April 22.
A clever comedy on the Biblical account of Adam and Eve, “eve’s odds” tells the story of the snake who tempts Eve to eat the apple. After she resists, he enlists a couple of unusual allies, including Adam’s first wife Lilith. Although several good forces try to intervene, Eve finally gives in. The opera was written by two Penn State professors, Bruce Trinkley (music) and Jason Charnesky (words) and was premiered there in 1997.
