The Bluegrass Opera is proud to present the world premiere of the new Easter cantata "Thy Will Be Done" by Lexington composer Angela Rice featuring Metropolitan Opera tenor and UK alum Gregory Turay. Filled with melodies that are at once both infectious and deeply moving, the cantata features text drawn from scripture, including Psalm 23 and The Lord's Prayer, as well as additional lyrics by the composer. Also included on the program will be the world premiere of Rice's "Martyred Maid" for voice and piano (composed in honor of the 600th birthday of Joan of Arc), featuring soprano Lori White.
