Based on the Thorton Wilder book, the opera has a libretto by J.D. McClatchy. Mark Flint will conduct.

The opera will have its world premiere Feb. 24 in a student production at the Indiana University Opera Theater.

The production at Lake George’s Spa Little Theater will be directed by Nelson Sheeley and the set designer is Garrett Wilson.

The Lake George summer season also includes Rossini’s “Il Barbiere di Siviglia” and a double bill of Leoncavallo’s “Pagliacci” and Cimarosa’s “Il Maestro di Cappella.”
