The Grant Wood Operas: Strokes of Genius    
The Grant Wood Operas: Strokes of Genius
A Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre commission and world premiere
at Theatre Cedar Rapids April 12–14

The jewel of the Cedar Rapids Opera’s 21st season is a Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre commission and world premiere, inspired by the work and life of Cedar Rapids native, artist Grant Wood.

Three one-act pieces by Iowa-based composers Jean-François Charles, Michael Ching and Robert Lindsey-Nassif range from whimsical, to historical, to experimental coming together in a complete experience and fuller understanding of Grant Wood.

In this very special first production, Nicholas Nestorak, last seen with Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre on the Paramount Stage as Pang in Turandot, will sing the role of Grant Wood.

Starting one hour before each showtime, join us for a free curtain talk by art historian and author of Grant Wood: A Life, R. Tripp Evans.
