You have everything you need. Then you double it. Then you lose it all. How do you get it back? Where do you end up?

Chicago Fringe Opera is proud to take part in Decameron Opera Coalition’s inaugural series “Tales from a Safe Distance.”

October 9 through October 30 new episodes from the series will be released from companies all over the country. Each episode includes two to three works, creating a total of 10 unique tales. Fringe will be featured in Episode 4: “The Bolts of Fortune ” with our piece “Corsair.” “Corsair” is one man’s journey from greed to humility, from isolation to community, all told through the epic form of hip-hopera.
