A semi-staged North American Premiere performed by the Wichita State Opera Theater and the Wichita State University Wind Ensemble

Nearly 80 years after the Holocaust, WSU Opera Theatre presents an evening of opera that will not be forgotten. The Path to Heaven is a Powerful and moving one act opera with music by British composer, Adam Gorb and librettist, Ben Kaye. A tale of extremism, expedience and deceit, the work exposes the disintegration of the loves, lives and hopes of a family struggling to survive during the Holocaust. Sara, Hanna, Dieter, Magda and Hans return home from a party to find that, having "danced too long in the moonlight", evil stalks them from the darkness. The discovery that their adoptive parents have disappeared triggers a descent into a nightmare from which none will escape unchanged. A meticulously-researched series of individual real stories as been woven into a thrilling new opera for the 21st Century. This will be an operatic even you will not want to miss. Directed by Alan Held - Dr. Timothy Shade, Conductor
