      Fall Opera Showcase: What Is Opera?

      Opera UTEP presents its Fall Opera Showcase, exploring the question: What Is Opera?

      Opera combines the unamplified human voice (miraculous, and mic-less!), high drama, farcical comedy, dance and more. Opera is romance, opera is vengeance! Opera is comedy, opera is tragedy. Opera is athletic, opera is elegant. Opera is highbrow and lowbrow. Opera is for everyone!

      This semester's scenes will include music from timeless opera composers such as Verdi, Mozart, Rossini, Gilbert and Sullivan, and Bernstein.

      Join Opera UTEP this November for an eclectic evening of song and dance, laughter, drama and romance, featuring special guest artists, Dr. Elisa Fraser Wilson and the UTEP Voice Faculty. The show is directed by Cherry Duke, with choreography by Josey Pickett. Dr. Esequiel Meza is our pianist.
