By Francisco Salazar

The Cincinnati Opera has announced that it will offer an additional performance of the new opera, “The Knock” on July 7 due to popular demand.

The work is part of its 2023 Summer Festival and is composed by Aleksandra Vrebalov with a libretto by Deborah Brevoort.

“The Knock” offers a glimpse into the sacrifices made by U.S. military wives on the home front while their spouses are deployed.

The new opera is set to star Armando Contreras, Mary-Hollis Hundley, and Briana Elyse Hunter. Stephanie Rhodes Russell conducts the production by Alison Moritz. “The Knock” opens on June 23 and runs through July 7, 2023 with three performances already sold out.
