Later the Same Evening was inspired by five Edward Hopper paintings: "Room in New York," "Hotel Window," "Hotel Room," "Two on the Aisle" and "Automat."  This opera imagines the lives of a few of his characters.  See the moments before and after the ones captured on canvas, as all of these story lines converge at a Broadway show one rainy night in 1932. Join Gerbrandt as he returns to Opera Memphis in the charming one-act opera, composed by John Musto.  It is not to be missed!
