OPERA | 'Les Enfants Terribles' 

Eastman Opera Theatre is at it again. Following a triumphant production of Monteverdi's "L'incoronazione di Poppea," the troupe this week will offer a decidedly more intimate, modern work with minimalist composer Philip Glass's "Les Enfants Terribles." Based on the Jean Cocteau novel of the same name, the 1996 chamber opera follows two siblings as they create an imaginary world together that ends unavoidably as the passage of time toward adulthood looms. Simultaneously whimsical and dark, "The Terrible Children" also features two dancers who help to further illuminate the story.

"Les Enfants Terribles" will be performed from Thursday, February 1, through Saturday, February 3, at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday, February 4, at 2 p.m. at Eastman Opera Studio, Annex 804, Eastman School of Music, 26 Gibbs Street. Pre-performance talks will be presented one-hour prior to each performance. $24, $10 students. 274-3000; eastmantheatre.org.
