Living Proof Exhibit Opera: Karkinos

February 12 - March 14

In collaboration with Living Proof Exhibit, the QCSO commissioned local composer and Augustana Professor Jacob Bancks to create the opera Karkinos that will provide hope and celebration for those with cancer and all who love them. Inspired by direct conversations with people impacted by cancer, this emotional multi-media work featuring chamber orchestra, vocal soloists, dancers, and choir, depicts the story of a beautiful empress who is forced into battle with the unseen monster Karkinos the night before her coronation.

Digital Access Tickets Available through March 14 2022
