NEW “JOB” OPERA AT LCCC

A new opera at Lorain County Community College will tell the timeless story of “Job.”

The fresh and energetic opera will be performed at 7:30 p.m., Friday, October 19 and at 3 p.m., Sunday, October 21 at LCCC’s Stocker Arts Center. Tickets are $15 each or $10 senior citizens, LCCC students, staff and faculty. Group discounts are also available. Tickets can be ordered online at http://www.stockerartscenter.com/, or by calling the Stocker Arts Center box office at (440) 366-4040 from 12-6 p.m., Monday through Friday. Tickets are also available at the box office, located in the lobby of the Stocker Arts Center.

“Job” is the work of Robert Beckstrom, dean of LCCC’s arts and humanities division. The opera breathes new life into the ancient text and addresses the question of why bad things happen to good people. In the Old Testament story of Job, God and Satan make a bet based on the most upright and pious man, Job.  Satan wagers that if Job were to lose all his wealth and possessions that Job would then curse God. Job loses everything, except his unsympathetic wife, and later is covered with boils that torture him physically. Three friends come to console him with accusations, insisting that Job’s sinfulness is the cause of his misfortune.  Job pleads for justice and to have audience with God.  Finally, God speaks.

The opera is fully staged with cast, chorus and orchestra. Up-and-coming baritone Mark Wanich will play the role of Job.

Purchase your tickets today for this innovative opera.
