Marble City Opera Concludes Its 2021 Season with Puccini's "Tosca"


Marble City Opera concludes the 2020/2021 season with Puccini's dramatic opera, Tosca. Performances are June 4, 5, and 6 at St. John's Cathedral in downtown Knoxville and are also being offered online. Each of the three acts will be performed in a different location within the church to fully immerse the audience in a realistic experience. In continuation with Covid-19 safety protocalls, patrons will be required to wear masks and audience size is limited to 50, to ensure adequate social distancing. This beautiful and well-loved opera is sure to conclude this challenging and unique 2020/2021 season on a high note (no pun intended). With a cast of 16 (principle roles and chorus) and full orchestra conducted by Brian Holman, Tosca will be the largest production presented by MCO since last summer's I Pagliacci

Melony calls the beautiful mountains of Boone, N.C., home, although she was born near Greensboro, N.C. There’s just something about those Blue Ridge Mountains that got in her blood and never left after she moved there to attend Appalachian State University (ASU). While at ASU, she majored in piano performance and music therapy and began to cultivate a love for accompanying and for collaborating with other musicians. This soon led her to earn a master’s degree in collaborative piano at the University of Tennessee, which she attended from 2006-2008.
