Unfinished: An Opera - A NEW CONCERT READING
Vital Opera is pleased to announce a concert reading of Joshua Groffman and Sarah Heady's Unfinished: An Opera, featuring newly added material. Unfinished tells the story of the life and death of Bennett College in Millbrook, NY. Originally opened as a finishing school for young women in 1907, Bennett's abrupt closing in 1977 forever altered the economic and physical fabric of the village. Today, the abandoned campus remains fenced off and in ruins, a stark contrast to its beautiful environs and a lasting reminder of what was lost. Using a mix of archival materials and contemporary testimony from Bennett alumni and the Millbrook community, Unfinished explores how Bennett is remembered, and forgotten, today.
