Opera Running Through Us

December 7, 2015, 6:30 pm

Join Hal France and his very talented young guests from the UNL and UNO opera programs who will perform while Hal France shares some common and some uncommon knowledge about the ways opera surrounds our culture.

Baritone, Jesse Wohlman and Mezzo Soprano, Patty Cramer from the UNL Opera Theater and singers from the UNO OpShop will offer popular opera arias.

Opera is music and the human voice serving stories theatrically in the most sophisticated and complete way possible. It gushes from the creativity of some of the most brilliant minds in history and pours through the extraordinary voices, bodies, minds and spirits of the most gifted singers. It emanates from imaginations directors and designers who explore our changing world. Opera flows like a river carrying humanity.

Opera's stories spring from human experience! Operatic form carry these stories through a fascinating and complex maze of psychology, characters, relationships, popular culture and diverse communities.

There are still many cultures and people on earth that have not received operatic treatment. Will we get to learn more about our magnificent diverse planet through opera?

I expect we will. In the meantime, join us for a fun and enlightening evening of opera.
