On Demand: An Afternoon at the Opera: Undergraduate Opera Scenes
Emerging Artist Series
Join the UNCSA Undergraduate Opera Workshop as they present two one-act operas in
the style of a 1940s Radio Show.
John Duke’s “Captain Lovelock” is a tale of a wealthy, elderly widow who wishes to
marry a young army officer. Her daughters conspire with a marriage broker to show
the old woman the folly of her plan.
Also on the program is Offenbach’s “Monsieur and Madame Denis” in a new translation
bySteven LaCosse, stage director and artistic director of the A.J. Fletcher Opera Institute. The story
is about a niece who is kidnapped from boarding school by her fiancé, a spicy maid
who saves the day, and a puffed up sergeant in pursuit of the abducted niece.
