figaro On November 21 and 23, the University of Memphis Opera will present Mozart's gloriously funny opera, Le Nozze di Figaro. An entire household is drawn into a complex plot! Figaro is just plain fun…slamming doors, cheating husbands, disguises, deception, hiding, and for a change of pace, women getting the best of the men. Dr. Janet Page will present a short pre-performance lecture on the opera at 6:45 on Friday and 2:15 on Sunday in room 113 of the Music Building.  Times, location, and ticket prices.

cosi  Congratulations to the cast, chorus, orchestra, music staff, production and design teams of Così fan tutte for winning 1st Place in the National Opera Association's Best Production Competition, Division 5, 2013-14. According to Mark Ensley, "Being awarded a prize through the National Opera Association isn't just an acknowledgment of the strength of our opera program, but of the Rudi E. Scheidt School of Music as a whole. To win the award a performance must show strengths in all areas of the production which include vocal performance, staging, production design and orchestral conducting and playing. So we in the opera area share this award with our outstanding colleagues on the voice, instrumental, and orchestral faculties."

holiday The holiday will be filled with music and memories as the School of Music ushers in the season. Performances by student ensembles will include old favorites and some new, original works. The concert is Wednesday, December 3 at 12:35 pm in Harris Concert Hall.  Admission is free.
