‘Love in a Time of War’ to be performed by Opera Techniques course

War, by definition, means conflict. War can manifest in many ways, and is not limited to the physical reality of bombs and explosions. Personal, cultural, political, and emotional conflict can create an atmosphere of war within ourselves and within our relationships. In the midst of war, however, love finds a way to coexist. The Opera Scenes performance titled ‘Love in a Time of War’ on Wednesday, April 26 at 4 p.m. in the Westbrook Recital Hall explores the way war appears in varied and insidious forms in human life, and the consequences it can have on love.

Students in the spring Opera Techniques course present a collection of opera scenes during this performance. This performance is the final project for the course, which teaches students how to research, prepare and perform an operatic role.

The event is free and open to the public.
