OCU: Musical and Bible study join the national conversation
Based on the biblical story of “Susanna and the Elders” from the Apocrypha, this modern retelling is set in rural Tennessee and follows a series of escalating events that begin at a church dance and end with a community torn apart. Like the biblical story on which it is based, the opera delves into the themes of lust, false accusations, sexual assault, and the aftermath.
As a companion to the show, the OCU Wesley Center has prepared a Bible study for use by youth and adults. It is available for free download on their website: www.okcu.edu/campus/religious-life.
Tickets for the three performances range from $14-$28 each and are available through the OCU Ticket Office.
