Event Description

Feb. 2 & 3 at 7:00 p.m., Feb. 4 at 3:00 p.m.

Willamette University Dramatic Vocal Arts is thrilled to present its 2018 Opera Scenes production. Our talented students will be performing in scenes from some of the world’s best-loved operas including Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, Douglas Moore’s The Ballad of Baby Doe, Samuel Barber’s A Hand of Bridge, and Menotti’s The Telephone. Our evening will feature four highly varied depictions of love and relationships - some simple and beautiful - and others that are complicated and just plain messy. You’ll hear the famous Cosa sento trio from Marriage of Figaro, and watch as poor Cherubino gets discovered once again in a place where he shouldn't be. You’ll hear the story of the budding love between Elizabeth “Baby” Doe and mining mogul Horace Tabor, based on a fascinating true story set in the mountains of Colorado. You’ll also see two couples settling into a weekly game of bridge while also secretly revealing their innermost thoughts and fantasies. Menotti’s The Telephone will round out the evening’s production, and tells the story of a young man in the early 20th century who’s eager to propose to his girlfriend. Unfortunately, he can’t pull her away from her brand-new telephone long enough to pop the question!
