Brief Encounters is a trio of 15-minute operas about life, love, and marriage, written by Mark Adamo (Avow), Jake Heggie (Again), and Joe Illick (Feel The Tango).

  • In Avow, Adamo highlights the pre-wedding jitters and comical inner monologues of a young couple about to walk down the aisle.
  • Heggie and librettist David Patrick Stearns’ modern fable, Again, explores the darker side of relationships and domestic violence, with a behind-the-scenes look at the four main protagonists of I Love Lucy.
  • The lively trio concludes with Feel the Tango, Illick and librettist Susan Westfall’s hilarious portrait of a jaded married couple whose Friday night takes an unexpected turn once they step into their favorite Spanish restaurant.

This is a substitution for Das Rheingold​, which was canceled due to high production costs. Performances will take place in the Lecture Hall at Fort Worth Botanic Garden.
