Singing in the new year
Posted Thursday, January 13, 2011 10:00 AM
 
An eve of opera, desire and devotion
 
The culmination of this year’s Opera Theatre Ensemble from the Marcel A. Desautels Faculty of Music at the U of M will showcase the ensemble’s many talented students in excerpts from operas filled with passion.

With music direction by Mel Braun and stage direction by opera studies coordinator Katherine Twaddle, the evening includes pieces sung in both Italian and English by faculty students who were selected by audition last fall. Excerpts will be presented from L’Incoronazione di Poppea by Claudio Monteverdi, Susannah by Carlisle Floyd, A Midsummer Night’s Dream by Benjamin Britten, Rigoletto by Giuseppe Verdi, and Il Viaggio a Reims by Gioacchino Rossini.
