The Bluegrass Opera’s fifth annual Easter celebration, featuring the return of the oratorio King of Glory, will be held at the following times and dates:
▪ 7 p.m. Saturday at Heritage Baptist Church, 163 North Ashland Avenue.
▪ 3 p.m. April 3 at St. Paul’s Parish, Florence.
▪ 7:30 p.m. April 8 at the Newman Center on the University of Kentucky campus.
The performances will be free. The work, with text entirely from scripture, tells the story of the crucifixion and resurrection through a musical journey.
“It’s sort of like Handel’s Messiah, except it’s meant for today’s listeners instead of 18th-century ears,” said Lorne Dechtenberg, artistic director of The Bluegrass Opera and composer of King of Glory.
