Opera MODO Presents

"A Capacity For Evil"

Friday + Saturday | September 28 + 29 | Ant Hall

Inspired by the tradition of Sherlock Holmes, the detective tale, "A Capacity for Evil," is based on an original story conceived by the composer Evan L. Snyder, and by tenor John Riesen. The story follows Daniel, a famed 1930s private eye, who, with help from his partner Doyle and his fiancĂ©e Angelica, works to unravel a series of grisly religious murders occurring on New Years Eve before the unknown murderer is able to realize the full scope of his perverse aims. As tensions rise and time runs short, the bonds between the three friends are tested - the limits of human compassion and trust tried against the dark ordeals of this imperceptible murderer. 

A Capacity for Evil was a winner of the 2017 Frontiers Competition through which selections were performed as a part of the Forth Worth Opera Festival in May 2017.

This production has been sponsorsd by the MSU College of Music, the Graduate School at MSU, and MSU Running Start 2018.
