Going Wilder 

Festival Opera's Our Town at the Dean Lesher Center

Festival Opera deviates from the tried and true this week by staging the West Coast premiere of Ned Rorem's new opera Our Town. Based on Thornton Wilder's play of the same name, with libretto by J.D. McClatchy, the four-performance run in the Dean Lesher Center for the Arts features the wonderful Marnie Breckenridge as Emily Webb and tenor Thomas Glenn as George Gibbs. Saturday, August 11 through Tuesday, Aug. 14. 8 p.m. Tickets are $26 to $100. 925-943-SHOW or FestivalOpera.com
