Pre-Performance Talk – Opening Night of The Flood

Get discount tickets to opening night of The Flood and arrive early for a lively conversation that will provide context to enrich your experience. World premiere and co-commissioned by ProMusica Chamber Orchestra and Opera Columbus, composed by Korine Fujiwara with a libretto by Stephen Wadsworth, The Flood tells a story of human connection through loss and shared tragedy, centered around the devastation of Columbus’ Franklinton neighborhood in the Great Flood of 1913. 

»BUY TICKETS – Columbus Landmarks members enjoy a 10% ticket discount with Code CLM10. 

The Great Flood has had a lasting impact on Franklinton, and the neighborhood today is undergoing massive transformation. Columbus Landmarks’ very own Doreen Uhas Sauer, Education Coordinator, and Jim Sweeney, Trustee, will offer a 30-minute opening night pre-performance talk at 6:30 p.m. – the performance begins at 7:30 p.m. Doreen is a historian and popular contributor to WOSU’s Columbus Neighborhoods series. Jim is an urban planner, longtime Franklinton resident, and arts advocate. Join us for a little Franklinton, then and now, before this exciting premiere.
