FIREWORKS
Composed by Kitty Brazelton
Libretto by Billy Aronson
This one act opera is a 4th of July comedy and social commentary. It is a hilarious opera/musical about a curious Alien who travels to Earth to investigate why we shoot colored lights into the sky every year on the 4th of July.

LADYBIRD: First Lady of the Land
Composed by Henry Mollicone
Libretto by Sheldon Harnick
This is a one-act opera based upon events in the life of first lady Lady Bird Johnson, the wife or Lyndon Baines Johnson.
