Great Hall, Gallagher Bluedorn Performing Arts Center
The sights and sounds of some of opera’s greatest hits and perennial favorites will come to life in the Great Hall of the Gallagher-Bluedorn. UNI Opera (Sandra Walden, director) will join forces with the Northern Iowa Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Rebecca Burkhardt, to perform a variety of opera and operetta favorites. Opera is filled with moments of great drama, uproarious comedy, unrequited love, and the occasional happy ending, and this evening of opera will offer a taste of each! Hum along with your favorite arias, tap your foot to a lively chorus, and join us for a festive evening to remember. Following in the tradition of UNI Opera’s performances of Die Fledermaus (2011) and Die Zauberflöte (2012), Gallagher-Bluedorn will once more be filled with the sounds of opera!
