Mysteries of the Mind
Polk Theater

Dive in to the thrilling mystique of two contemporary operas. First, in The Lighthouse: What really happened to the three workers who disappeared from the Flannan Isles lighthouse on a dreary December night in 1900? Did they go mad? Were they murdered?

Join our panelist as they pull us into the raw emotion and teetering fragility of the human psyche in these provocative stories.
