Opera AACC is scheduled to perform "The History of Singing for the Stage" at ARTSCAPE 2012 Saturday, July 21 at 7 p.m. at Falvey Hall in the Brown Center at Maryland Institute College of Art, 1300 W. Mount Royal Ave., Baltimore.
From Baroque to rock opera, the professional singers, faculty and students of the Anne Arundel Community College opera company will present excerpts from “Dido and Aeneas,” “The Magic Flute,” “The Pirates of Penzance,” “Naughty Marietta,” “The Great American Songbook,” “Spring Awakening” and “American Idiot.” In collaboration with the DragonFly Dance Experiment, the 55-minute performance will feature opera, operetta, musical theater and rock opera for a combination of projections, live performance and modern dance.
“ARTSCAPE is the largest free arts festival in the United States, so for Opera AACC to be invited to perform as the only college ensemble selected is an amazing honor,” said Doug Byerly, AACC Performing Arts Chair. Byerly wrote and produced the production along with fellow Performing Arts adjunct faculty member, Megan Morse Jans.
The performance is free and ARTSCAPE is a family-friendly event. To learn more about ARTSCAPE 2012 including directions and where to park, visit www.artscape.org.
