The concert program will feature excerpted arias from favorite operas, performed by esteemed alumni Laura Anderson (soprano), Matthew Lovell (baritone) and Sheila Willey Hannon (soprano), as well as current students. Included in the program will also be a sneak-preview of this Spring's opera, Cosi fan tutte. There will be a silent auction and reception following the concert. 

 

Tickets to this event will be $60 per person, all proceeds to benefit UCSC's 2013 season, including our family opera, Menotti's Chip and his Dog, and our Spring production, Mozart's classic comedy, Cosi fan tutte. We rely on your generosity as UCSC Opera Program receives no funding from the university. Thank you for supporting our opera program- your ticket purchase helps keep our opera program alive and thriving in the community!

 

Mark your calendars for our 2013 productions, March 2 (Menotti's Chip and his Dog) and May 30-June 2 (Mozart's Cosi fan tutte). 

 

 

Thank you for your generosity!
