“For idle hearts and hands and minds, the Devil finds a work to do.” The CCM Opera department discovers just how true that adage is in their rendition of Stravinsky’s comedic opera The Rake’s Progress. Unique to this production is a first-time collaboration between CCM’s Departments of Opera and Theatre Design & Production with the Division of Electronic Media, providing an updated technological aspect. Mark Gibson conducts with stage direction by Robin Guarino. This outrageous tale of love, lust, greed and the repercussions of a life of sin plays May 10, 12 and 13 in Corbett Auditorium on the University of Cincinnati campus.

The subject matter of The Rake’s Progress is adult in nature and the production of the opera is intended for mature audiences. This production also makes use of haze, smoke and strobe lighting effects.
