For its final show of the season, Opera Theatre of Saint Louis presents Tobias Picker's modern opera Emmeline, which is about a young woman whose newborn son is forcefully taken from her and raised by an unknown family. Twenty years later she gets married to a younger man, and can you guess who he is? Picker's tale of woe was inspired by events in a nineteenth-century New England mill town, but there is also the hint of Oedipus present. Canadian soprano Joyce El-Khoury makes her OTSL debut in Emmeline, which is performed at 8 p.m. Saturday, June 13, at Webster University's Loretto-Hilton Center (130 Edgar Road; 314-961-0644 or www.opera-stl.org). Tickets are $25 to $125.
Sat., June 13, 8 p.m.; Wed., June 17, 8 p.m.; Fri., June 19, 8 p.m.; Sun., June 21, 7 p.m.; Thu., June 25, 8 p.m.; Sat., June 27, 1 p.m., 2015
