NC Opera season includes ‘Cold Mountain’

A Confederate soldier’s arduous quest to return home, the tragic consequences of a father’s revenge on his daughter’s seducer, and the conflict between religious faith and carnal desire, are the subjects of N.C. Opera’s 2017-18 main-stage productions. In addition to Jennifer Higdon’s “Cold Mountain,” Giuseppe Verdi’s “Rigoletto” and Camille Saint-Saens’ “Samson and Delilah,” the season also includes an evening of songs by Daniel Thomas Davis based on the N.C. author’s works and a program of opera scenes co-produced with UNC School of the Arts.

Building a world through art and nature

When Jim Kellison isn’t working in the distinctive gardens of his home on Whitaker Mill Road in Raleigh, he creates two- and three-dimensional art – castles, lighthouses, dollhouses, cityscapes and entire villages – mostly out of paper. You can see them on display April 22.
