This is not to be missed. The UGA Opera Theatre presents a three-day production of Mozart's The Magic Flute:
The three-day engagement will feature the UGA Opera Theater in conjunction with the UGA Symphony Orchestra conducted by Daniel Bara, director of choral activities. Frederick Burchinal, director of opera, is the production's producer. Opera coach Kathryn Wright is responsible for musical preparation.
The opera will be performed in German with English supertitles provided by Carroll Freeman, who is serving as visiting stage director. A professor of opera at Georgia State University, Freeman's operatic career includes stage and television; he has twice received the National Opera Institute Award.
Feb. 15-17, in the Fine Arts Theatre, go here for tickets. If by some chance you haven't experienced our Opera Theatre productions, they are more than a treat - they are professional productions involving highly trained specialists in every area, from singing to music to staging. That we have this level of performance and production right here in Athens is a testament the faculty and student talent UGA attracts. This will be a serious, and seriously enjoyable, live production of Die Zauberflöte in German with English supertitles.
