The Ballad of Baby Doe will be presented by the UNL Opera under the direction of William Shomos, director of UNL Opera.  It has been his dream to tour opera to communities beyond the immediate reaches of Lincoln and Omaha.   This outreach mission materialized last year with a production that reached audiences in Friend, Ord, Norfolk, and Red Cloud. 

Now in its second year, the Opera Across Nebraska Tour is made possible by a major gift from the James C. and Rhonda Seacrest Tour Nebraska Opera Fund.  James Seacrest, who died in 2016, was president and chairman of the Western Publishing Company in North Platte from 1968 to 2000.

 Because of the special sponsorship of the Seacrests’ Tour Nebraska Opera Fund, admission to The Ballad of Baby Doe is free to the public. There will be a free public performance of the opera on Sunday, October 8, at 2:00 p.m.   The opera will give a special performance for middle school and high school students on Tuesday, October 10.

Based on a true story, The Ballad of Baby Doe is a musical saga about the rise and fall of silver-mine magnate, Horace Tabor, and his two wives, Augusta, and Baby Doe, whose youth and beauty lured Horace away from his first wife.

 The opera, which had its premier performance in Central City in 1956, was written by Douglas Moore with lyrics by John Latouche.  It was presented at the New York City Opera in 1958 and has been performed in many venues across the country.  The role of Baby Doe has been sung by several famous sopranos, including Beverly Sills.

The Ballad of Baby Doe is co-sponsored by the North Platte Community Playhouse and the North Platte Community Concert Association
