Fort Worth Opera Festival presents Voir Dire

  • 525 Commerce
  • Fort Worth, TX 76102-5440

The operatic action continues across the street from Bass Hall at McDavid Studio, with the 2017 Opera Unbound production of Voir Dire. Written by composer Matthew Petersonand librettist Jason Zencka, this explosive opera was selected as a winner of the 2014 FWOpera Frontiers showcase, and returns to the Festival stage this season for its world premiere. Adapted from various court cases witnessed by the librettist during his time as a crime reporter, the opera takes place in a courtroom and plays out in a series of colorful vignettes that give audiences an insider’s look into the fascinating, hilarious and often insanely bizarre world of legal drama.
