Among this week's Nashville Scene Critics Picks is the opera Surrender Road, a genre-defying new opera about a modern-day New York boxer named Manuel ("Manny"). Tenor Hugo Vera stars in the lead role and makes his Nashville debut.
The opera was written by Nashville's Marcus Hummon, who has a number of commercial pop and country successes under his belt. Surrender Road runs tonight through Sunday at the Ingram Hall at Vanderbilt's Blair School of Music. The event is being promoted separately by the Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and the Franklin Hispanic Chamber of Commerce.
