We are pleased to announce that Cedar Rapids Opera Theatre has received a $10,000 Art Project Grant from the Iowa Arts Council, a division of the Iowa Department of Cultural Affairs for our April 2019 world premier and original commission, The Grant Wood Operas, Strokes of Genius.

Performances are onstage April 2019 at Theatre Cedar Rapids; tickets on sale through the TCR box office in January.

The Grant Wood Operas: Strokes of Genius, will be the whole of three unique pieces by Iowa-based composers Jean-François Charles, Michael Ching and Robert Lindsey-Nassif. The works range from historical, to whimsical, to experimental, each exploring the life and work of Eastern Iowa native Grant Wood in in its own way.
