Triangle Wagner Society hosts Jay Hunter Morris 
Friday, September 15, 7:30pm 
“What It’s Like to Sing a Six Hour Opera” followed by Q & A.
American tenor Jay Hunter Morris will reprise the sadistic Captain Teague, leader of the local Home Guard charged with hunting down Civil War deserters, on the NCO stage in our season premiere Cold Mountain. Morris debuted the role in the Cold Mountain world premiere at Santa Fe Opera in 2015, his seventh world premiere! On playing the bad guy, Morris said: "I’ve really enjoyed crawling into the psyche of Teague, a man who is completely free of remorse ... we all need variety, challenges, and opportunities to stretch."
Venue: Private home in Chapel Hill. Directions provided when you reserve your spot. Email Margie Satinsky at margiesatinsky@icloud.com or call 919-383-5998.
Open for Wagner Society Members only.
