Research for Temperance and Temptation
A professional historian was hired and research was conducted as preparation for a concert production of "Temperance and Temptation". Historical information, music and lyrics for temperance and anti-temperance songs and compelling images were incorporated into the performances. The result was an artistic performance grounded in Minnesota history.
