Fizz & Ginger

We invite you into the nightlife of the Roaring Twenties with Fizz & Ginger, a new and vivacious jazz opera. For one week, Theater Wit turns into the Crossroads Speakeasy and invites you into a raucous tale where everyone has their own story – some of which might just make the front page of tomorrow’s papers.

A Christmas Carol

A chamber opera for tenor, piano, and percussion
by Iain Bell & Simon Callow
In 1853, Charles Dickens began to perform A Christmas Carol in public, portraying each of the characters himself without props or costumes. This tradition continues with Iain Bell and Simon Callow’s chamber opera adaptation, bringing the redemption that embodies the Christmas spirit to life.
