UNCG Opera Nov. 12-15

The UNCG Opera Theatre will present a fall opera production of three English one-acts: Floyd’s “Slow Dusk” (the “sad”), Holst’s “Sāvitri” (the “sublime”) and Menotti’s “The Old Maid and the Thief” (the “ridiculous”).

The performances are Thursday-Saturday, Nov. 12-14, 7:30 p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 15, at 2 p.m. in Aycock Auditorium

“We’re presenting three very unique and interesting short, one-act operas this fall,” David Holley explains. “‘Slow Dusk’ is a dark tragedy set in the hills of North Carolina, while ‘Savitri’ is a very well-known, uplifting episode from the ‘Mahābhārata.’ We are capping off the performances with ‘The Old Maid and the Thief’ by Gian-Carlo Menotti, the same composer as ‘Amahl and the Night Visitors.’  ‘Old Maid’ is a hilarious, quick-paced comedy that will keep the audience in stitches from beginning to end.”
