20160921_south-pacific-capital-ad-onlineBased on James Michener’s Tales of the South Pacific, this Pulitzer Prize-winning work is considered one of the greatest musicals ever written. Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific has become a standard for opera companies since its 1987 production by New York City Opera. Don’t miss this brilliant presentation about two couples from two different worlds who seize their chance at happiness and face the challenges of racial prejudice.

Sunday, November 6, 2016 the Annapolis Opera will honor Ms. Lucy Flade Libby, a member of the Annapolis community for over 40 years, who served as an army nurse in WWII in the Pacific Theater. 1North Wealth Management is the sponsor for this special tribute to Ms. Libby and Margo Cook of 1North was instrumental in introducing Ms. Libby to AOC President, Thomas DeKornfled.

During Ms. Libby’s service as a nurse on Saipan, she was responsible for numerous wards and the hospital did not lose a single patient under her watch. Ms. Libby landed on Saipan during the bombing, treated soldiers during the island campaigns, including Iwo Jima and remained there until the war’s end.
