This Week at Actors Theatre Grand Rapids – “Opus”

January 27-29 & February 3-5, 2011 8PM

Opening this week – Opus by Michael Hollinger!

Members of the cast of Opus rehearse their instruments with advisor Diane McElfish Helle.

The world-class Lazara String Quartet is struggling to prepare for their highest-profile performance when they decide to fire their brilliant, yet mercurial, violist. When a young woman is hired as the replacement, her gifts inspire them to attempt a musical feat of epic proportions.

The rehearsal room becomes a pressure cooker as passions rise, personalities clash, and the musicians are forced to tackle life, love, and the ephemeral nature of their work.

“a taut, smart, thoroughly entertaining drama about that most rarified of heady glories, the string quartet”
—Newsday

“Opus plays all of its notes with an utmost precision and delicacy”
—New York Post
