Opera in Camrose!
An outstanding roster of singers from the bachelor of music performance degree program at the U of A Augustana campus will present a night of opera favourites in An Evening of Opera and Musical Theatre.
The singers (students of Professor Kathleen Corcoran Music for the Theatre course) include hometown favourites like baritone Eric Skretting and soprano Gracie Yelland as well singers from throughout Alberta and Hong Kong including Shaley Bain, Shamah de Villiers, and Meghan Edgerton from Grande Prairie, Carrie-Ann Hubbard from Edmonton, and Hilda Lam from Hong Kong.
These fantastic voices will warm you with concert presentations of musical theatre songs and then unleash staged and costumed opera characters in virtuosic and heart-rending presentations!
Musical theatre excerpts include highlights from Phantom, The King and I, My Fair Lady, and the opera performances celebrate the genius of Mozart through arias from The Abduction from the Seraglio, The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, Cosi Fan Tutte, and excerpts from the virtuosic Gilda from Verdi’s Rigoletto as well as the gorgeous “Song to the Moon” from Rusalka by Dvořák (sung in Czech!).
The performance takes place in the Faith and Life Chapel on Augustana Campus the evening of Saturday, February 17 at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 (adults), $12 (students/seniors) and are available at the door.
Come enjoy the timeless themes of love sought, won, lost, and all the entanglements of romance! A glamorous night of vocal music at an evening of music for the theatre!!
