Marble City Opera Presents "Sweets By Kate"

On May 15th & 16th, Marble City Opera is presenting the professional premiere of "Sweets by Kate," a chamber opera by Griffin Candey. The opera tells the story of Elizabeth and Kate, two women who inherit a candy shop, and now must wrangle with disapproving townsfolk,  the precarious state of the store, and the deal Elizabeth's family made with the Devil--or Carl, as he prefers to be called in this show. 

Afternoon Concert host Whitney Dodds chats with the opera's composer Griffin Candey and Kathryn Frady, general and artistic director of MCO, who is also starring in the title role of "Sweets by Kate."
