Opera Workshop: "The Stories We Tell"

Gist Hall Theater
"The Stories We Tell" is the theme for this semester's Opera Workshop performances. But don't let the word opera throw you! A variety of musical genres have been selected to reflect a broad cross-section of the human experience, including musical theater, musical performance art, a staged version of a four-part choral work, and of course popular light opera. At the helm is Elisabeth Harrington, professor of music at HSU and the director of the Opera Workshop program.

Some of the stories being told include the melodic and heartfelt "Fathers of Fathers," featuring three men telling stories of their fathers from different stages of their lives; a scene from the Pulitzer Prize winning "Of Thee I Sing" which is a musical lampooning of American politics composed by George and Ira Gershwin; a story of manipulation through advertising called "Angry Birdsong;" a comic four-part harmony retelling of the cautionary tale "Hansel and Gretel;" and the hilarious Gallantry, which is a commentary on rampant commercialism in modern society told through a circa 1950s television soap opera which is constantly interrupted by sung commercials for a product no one needs.

Direction is by Elisabeth Harrington assisted by Jessie Rawson, John Chernoff accompanies the student singers on the piano, and costumes are by Catherine Brown.

Performances of "The Stories We Tell" are at the Gist Hall Theater on March 23rd through 26th, Thursday through Saturday evenings at 7:30 and on Sunday at 2:00.
