WHO ARE WE? operatic explorations of identity

March 29, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

Please join us for an evening of WORLD PREMIERE “mini-operas!”

UWM Opera Theatre will present a spring production of seven world premiere “mini-operas” in our beautiful Jan Serr Studio (Kenilworth Square). Our opera theatre class made a list of contemporary topics they feel require increased attention on the opera stage, and our composers have created original libretti and newly commissioned operas for the students to produce and premiere, which feature topics from the students’ list. Previous compositions by our professional opera composers – Ruben Piirainen, Tim Rebers, and Nathan Wesselowski – have premiered at Florentine Opera, Skylight Music Theatre, and Milwaukee Opera Theatre, and UWM voice and composition major, Xai (Sophia Geho) will make her opera composition debut. Don’t miss this groundbreaking exploration of topics of our time which celebrates this collaboration of emerging and expert musical talent.
