Join students from Augustana’s Music for Theatre class for performances of The Many Shades of Love! Audience members for the evening will be treated to a rich variety of individually staged arias and songs drawn from the abundant catalogues of the opera and musical theatre world.
Since the beginning of the school year, students in the Music for Theatre course, under the tutelage of instructors Harold Wiens and Charlene Brown, and with the assistance of collaborative pianist Tova Olson, have been exploring a deeper connection to storytelling through music. This evening represents the culmination of the course as students Alexandra Brigley, Chantel Schultz, Colden Palo, Emily Jackson, David Salmon and Quinn Henrickson present scenes from Handel, Wagner and Mozart operas, including such much-loved favorites as “Marriage of Figaro” and “Cosi fan tutti”.
In addition, the students will treat us to cabaret-style performances of the amazing music of Sondheim and to favorites from such Broadway masterpieces as Les Miserable, Fiddler on the Roof and Thoroughly Modern Millie. Tickets for the performance (available at the door) are $15 for adults and $12 for students and seniors. Augustana students are free of charge with proper ID.
