Join us for the world premiere of "The Lovers"

By Mark-Brian Sonna
With music from various Medieval Composers 

Based on actual events that have inspired countless artists over the centuries The Lovers is a true story.  It is a story of love, loss, and hope.  See why painters such as Degrain, writers like Shakespeare, and composers such as Donizetti have all found inspiration in this magnificent story.    What makes our production unique is that not only are we are presenting the story as it occurred, but we are also weaving weaves popular Spanish music from the Middle Ages making this the most unique musical you will ever see.  The eleven musical compositions that make up the score date back to the year 1190 and have not been performed in North Texas.  


So what is the story about?  We don't want to spoil it, so come join us and experience it for yourself!

Making their professional stage debuts as the lovers are Roxi Taylor and Michael Zimmermann.
