The opera takes place in a traveling carnival and tells the story of a brother and sister knife-throwing act in the midst of the student protests in Birmingham in the early 1960's. The story revolves around the relationship of the siblings and a femme fatal who eventually comes between them by challenging their superstitious beliefs in the volatile alchemy of a magic knife and a mysterious ritual. All of this transpires within the whimsical, colorful and often somber backdrop of a carnival landscape littered with barkers, a fire dancer, a belly dancer and vagabond arias.Read MORE about the opera here: http://vagabondopera.com/queen-of-knives/
