Solo Opera is pleased to present the West Coast Premiere of the full version of, The Three Feathers, a family friendly chamber opera with music by award winning composer, Lori Laitman, and libretto by former CA poet laureate, Dana Gioia.

Based on a fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm, the opera follows Princess Dora, not as a damsel in distress, but as a heroine. A magic feather leads the shy, self-doubting princess to an enchanted Underworld ruled by a giant Frog King. Here, she summons her courage and compassion to face a series of mysterious and comic adventures that change her life. Completing her quest, she saves her father’s kingdom from the plots of her selfish sisters and earns her right to the crown.

The opera stars Shawnette Sulker as “Princess Dora”, Eugene Brancoveanu as “The King”, and Kirk Eichelberger as the “The Frog King”. A 20-piece orchestra will be led by Maestro Alexander Katsman. A strong supporting cast features 12 talented professional opera singers and the prestigious San Francisco Girls Chorus.
