TWISTED APPLES: Stories from Winesburg, Ohio is a new operatic musical by Jim Payne and Robert Elhai. Based on Sherwood Andersons classic American novel Winesburg, Ohio, TWISTED APPLES tells the story of those who struggle to overcome their loneliness and isolation in a small town in the early 1900s as they seek an active life of the imagination.|
Over the last few years, Nautilus Music-Theater presented each act of TWISTED APPLES in the Minnesota Fringe Festival. Now, we bring all three acts together into one full-length evening of integrated music-theater. Audiences and critics have raved about the show, saying "Beautifully staged, gorgeous and evocative libretto and score, and knock-out singing / another fine example of how Nautilus and its typically superb composers, actors, and musicians pay attention to the subtle details that establish real characters and show us what they think and feel / the music and lyrics are rich and compelling / an excellent script and some truly gorgeous music, approachable and singable / it gives beauty and nobility and a clear voice to natural facts that are easy to repress / This show has been mounted by seasoned and richly talented professionals / as usual, Nautilus comes through with top quality in all aspects."
This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.
