Bluegrass Opera to stage world premiere of Ernst Bacon composition

Bluegrass Opera director Lorne Dechtenberg was surprised at what he was being offered. Ellen Bacon, the widow of esteemed composer Ernst Bacon, sent Dechtenberg a note asking whether he and his company would be interested in presenting her late husband's 1940s opera

A Tree on the Plains.

What's more, it would be the premiere professional production of the work.
