Riders to the Sea poster with production information

As our Winter Show, the Opera Theater of Yale College, in collaboration with the Yale Undergraduate Chamber Orchestra, is proud to present Ralph Vaughan Williams’s one-act opera Riders to the Sea, based on the play of the same name by J.M. Synge. The opera deals with themes of existentiality, fatalism, and the conflicts between tradition and modernity, encapsulated in a moving story of a mother and her daughters who have lost their father and seven brothers to the cruelty of the sea.

We will be holding auditions in September! Please feel free to contact Ben (ben.beckman@yale.edu) or Veronica (veronica.zimmer@yale.edu) with any questions, or if you’re interested in helping out on the production team!
