Linfield to host opera and musical theatre workshop

Linfield's Opera TheatreA collage of scenes from beloved operas and shows will highlight the opera and musical theatre workshops on Sunday, May 1, at 7:30 p.m. in Ice Auditorium in Melrose Hall at Linfield College.

This varied program, presented by the Linfield Music Department, contrasts excerpts from the classic masterpieces by Monteverdi, Pergolesi, Mozart and Puccini with contemporary musical theatre. From the elegance of the Italian baroque and the passion of the Spanish zarzuela, to the realism and humor of the modern musicals, this program offers a delightful overview of the possibilities of musical drama.

The scenes are directed by Anton Belov, assistant professor of music, and Hannah Penn, adjunct professor of music, with musical preparation by Susan McDaniel and Anne Britt.

The performance is free and open to the public. For more information, call 503-883-2275 or visit linfield.edu/arts.
