'Fat Pig' unfolds operatic story of love, cruelty and bias

Anew production presented by Victory Hall Opera explores a contemporary story of boy meets fat girl, boy loves fat girl — and then boy’s fat-phobic co-workers and a lifetime of societal conditioning and prejudice weigh in.


“Fat Pig,” which will be performed at 8 p.m. Saturday and again Jan. 27 in the V. Earl Dickinson Building at Piedmont Virginia Community College, is based on Neil LaBute’s play. It features music by Matt Boehler and libretto by Miriam Gordon-Stewart, who also directs the production.
