The BU Fall Fringe Festival, now in its 19th season, is a collaboration between the College of Fine Arts School of Music: Opera Institute and School of Theatre. The festival’s mission is to produce new or rarely performed significant works in the opera and theatre repertoire, bringing performances and audiences together in unique theatrical settings.

THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS
OCTOBER 2–4

Composed by Kurt Weill
Libretto by Bertolt Brecht
Music Direction by William Lumpkin
Stage Direction by Jim Petosa

In The Seven Deadly Sins, widely considered among Weill’s masterpieces, two immigrant sisters embark on a seven-­year odyssey through seven vice-­laden cities, as they try to earn money to build a family home in Louisiana. Sung in English. Approximate running time: 50 minutes

VINKENSPORT, OR THE FINCH OPERA
OCTOBER 9–11

Composed by David T. Little
Libretto by Royce Vavrek
Music Direction by Allison Voth
Stage Direction by E. Loren Meeker

“Vinkensport, or The Finch Opera” plays off of a Belgian folk competition focused on who owns the most melodious bird in the town. What seems to be a rather simple competition actually sets the stage for a journey into the minds of the competitors and their struggles with deception, loneliness, and love. Sung in English. Approximate running time: 40 minutes

DELIRIUM
OCTOBER 22–25

Created by Theatre O
Written by Enda Walsh
Directed by Jonathan Solari

Hilarious, brutal and tragic, Delirium is a radical re-­‐interpretation of The Brothers Karamazov, Dostoevsky’s classic and compelling tale of family rivalries. The Karamazovs are a train wreck waiting to happen. A hated father and his sons battle it out over women, money, and God. Behind them lurks a servant, taking note of it all and, to the side, two beautiful women clinging onto impossible loves. Approximate running time: 2 hours, 30 minutes.
