Springs Ensemble Theatre (“SET”) ends its seventh season with “Opus,” the story of a world class string quartet, by Michael Hollinger.
After firing their violist, the professional Lazara Quartet must replace him with someone talented enough to learn Beethoven’s Opus 131 – the Mount Everest of string quartets – in time for their televised performance at the White House.
The members of the Lazara Quartet – Elliot (Taylor Geiman), Alan (SET member Emory John Collinson), and Carl (David Corder) – fire their violist, Dorian (Dana Kjeldsen), when personal and artistic tensions get too high. Pressure is on to find a suitable replacement, which the quartet finds in Grace (Jessica Parnello). Then, at the moment of the quartet’s greatest triumph, Dorian returns on the scene and all of the old arguments culminate in one final, passionate confrontation.
Tickets are free but a suggested donation of $20 is welcome, as these performances are part of SET’s fundraising drive with IndyGive!
Seating is limited, so SET recommends making reservations early.
