See the world premiere of Anna Hunter

The Festival returns to Savannah this November, for the premiere of another specially commissioned Savannah-centric opera, Anna Hunter, The Spirit of Savannah starring soprano and Festival Executive Director and co-founder Maria Zouves in the lead role. Michael Ching, who composed Anna and her predecessor, Alice Ryley, will again put his masterful skills to work, bringing to life the music for “Anna.”
