AU Opera Workshop
Date: November 30, 2017 Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Event Description Aurora University presents two one-act comedic operas. “The Telephone” by Menotti is a charming scene of a woman on a telephone and the frustration her boyfriend has in gaining her attention. Gilbert and Sullivan’s second collaboration, “Trial by Jury,” is a ludicrous story about court proceedings surrounding a break-up of a marriage proposal. Signature Gilbert and Sullivan parody of authority and human life fill this short opera. Faculty and staff personnel include Mark Plummer, Associate Professor of Music, music director; Martha Kasten, and Stacy Searle, Assistant Professor of Theatre, stage directors; and John Curran, Associate Professor of Theatre, scenic design.
