The Music Department at Utah State University presents “Never in Your Wildest Dreams: Favorites from Opera to Broadway,” on Friday, Feb. 15 at 7:30 p.m. in the Price Civic Auditorium, featuring opera students from the Logan campus.
“This performance is fun, frivolous and a great way to spend the evening with the whole family,” said Lynn Jemison-Keisker, associate professor and director of the opera theatre program in the Caine College of the Arts at USU in Logan.
Thirty undergraduate students from the Logan campus will perform well-known scenes from 19th and 20th century composers, including those of Giacomo Puccini, Leonard Bernstein and W. S. Gilbert & Arthur Sullivan.
“The selections are comedic and romantic, with all pieces sung in English,” said Jemison-Keisker.
Also included are segments from “Grease,” by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, a short fairytale opera “The Emperor’s New Clothes” by Douglas Moore, and “Make Your Garden Grow” from Leonard Bernstein’s “Candide,” based on the 18th century French novel by Voltaire.
“Never in Your Wildest Dreams: Favorites from Opera to Broadway” is free and open to the public, in the Price Civic Auditorium located at 185 East Main Street. For more information contact Greg Benson at 435-613-5294 or [email protected].
