Lakes Area Music Festival: The Rake’s Progress
In this unique opera, Igor Stravinsky gives a dramatic and diabolical rebirth to Mozartean opera. Based on a series of artworks from the 18th century, The Rake’s Progress follows the decline of Tom Rakewell, whose unknowing encounter with the devil transforms him from an innocent, lazy farm boy to living the high life in London before ending up in the depths of the infamous Bedlam asylum. In the end, only love can save an irredeemable soul.
