On February 12 in Indianapolis, four opera divas will attempt to gain access to Heaven in Too Many Sopranos, a biennial Indianapolis performing arts production by students and faculty at the University of Indianapolis. Penned by Edwin Penhorwood, Too Many Sopranos is an amusing take on the theater, featuring four stereotypical opera divas who are denied entrance to the pearly gates after discovering that Heaven’s choir is full. The production is being put on by the Department of Music and the Department of Theatre for one of the best Indianapolis colleges, the University of Indianapolis.

Not just an effort of Indianapolis education, Too Many Sopranos will be directed by James Caraher of the Indianapolis Opera, an Indianapolis musical organization that has been dedicated to performing the ancient art of opera in the Circle City for the past 35 years. This production is something that all lovers of Indianapolis music can get behind.
