The College of the Canyons music department and Santa Clarita Performing Arts Center at COC (PAC) will hosts a workshop performance of faculty member Dr. Daniel Catan’s chamber orchestra version of his opera “La Hijia de Rappaccini,” at 8 p.m. tonight

An operatic version of Octavio Paz’ play by the same name and the short story “Rappaccini’s Daughter” by Nathanial Hawthorne, “La Hijia” marks an effort by Catan to create a full-scale opera that can be staged by venues that have been reluctant to showcase opera productions in the past.

“La Hijia de Rappaccini” will be produced by PAC managing director Adam Philipson and funded through a Chairman’s Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).

“La Hijia de Rappaccini” will run at 8 p.m. tonight, on the PAC main stage. Admission is free, however reservations are required.
