Susannah - UNI Opera

In the backwoods of Tennessee, a beautiful young woman is accused of indecent behavior after she is discovered bathing naked in a stream. Will the charismatic traveling preacher who sets his sights on her soul be her salvation, or her downfall? Carlisle Floyd's all-American score, which beautifully evokes the work's rural Appalachian setting, "is unabashedly neo-Romantic" (The New York Times). UNI Opera Presents "Susannah" with the Northern Iowa Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Rebecca Burkhardt and directed by Mitra Sadeghpour. Sung in English with English Supertitles. These performances are ticketed. For tickets, call 319-273-4TIX.

We the People: Trust in Public Discourse

Bill Clohesy, professor of philosophy, will present “’We the People’: Trust in Public Discourse.” Freedom of religion and secular government are inseparable in the American republic.  This talk explores the Constitution’s secular promise of respect for both politics and religion—if we choose to accept it. Today, numerous opponents would undo both secular republican government and respect for religious diversity. Our greatest defense is still to practice politics as the exchange of opinion upon which all true government rests. For more information, contact Martha Reineke at martha.reineke@uni.edu.
