The A.J. Fletcher Opera Institute presents two one-act French operas from the 20th  century.  First, Gabriel Pierné’s Sophie Arnould. Sophie was a famous singer during the time of the last half of the 18th century. In her retirement, her former lover Duvall makes a visit and a long-held secret is revealed.

L’heure espagnole (The Spanish Hour) is a comic opera by Maurice Ravel. A jealous husband, a wife with a roving eye, and a muleteer meet at a clock shop one morning. Time is ticking in this delightful comedy.
