From tulsapac.com – Tulsa Youth Opera, Tulsa Opera’s music training program for young singers in third through twelfth grades, presents Dean Burry’s “The Hobbit,” based on the beloved novel by J.R.R. Tolkien and the subject of the epic cinematic trilogy by Peter Jackson. Burry’s opera, written for young people and performed by young people, brings to life all the magic of Tolkien’s Middle Earth with a hummable score populated with hobbits, elves, wizards, orcs and a dragon. The opera was premiered to critical acclaim and sold-out houses by Canadian Children’s Opera Chorus in 2004 and has enjoyed frequent performances throughout the U.S. Tulsa Opera is very pleased to present this production by special arrangement with the composer and publisher in conjunction with the Tolkien estate.
