Description

The San Jose Chamber Orchestra and The Retro Dome are proud to present a screening of the film, The Face on the Barroom Floor: The Poem, the Place, the Opera. This documentary tells the story of a strange ballad poem written in 1887 which became a unusual portrait on the barroom floor in a quaint former boomtown in Colorado and became the inspiration for one of the most performed modern American operas in history. A discussion with the opera's composer Henry Mollicone will follow the screening. For more information and ticketing options, go to http://www.sjco.org/SJCO/Events.html
