Student Night at the Opera- The Marriage of Figaro

Opportunity from Arizona Opera: take your students to the opera for a low cost or FREE!

THE MARRIAGE OF FIGARO

Figaro has fallen in love—but it’s complicated. On the day of his marriage to Susanna, Figaro’s master, the Count Almaviva, has set his wandering eye on the bride-to-be. Soon, everyone in Seville is scheming to achieve their own happy ending. But ultimately, only forgiveness can untangle this knot of love, loyalty, and misunderstanding. Overflowing with joyous music, Mozart’s witty, timeless tale reminds us what it means to be flawed—what it means to be human.

Wednesday, April 3, 2019 7:00pm *This performance will last 3 hours – you are welcome to come for the first two acts and leave at intermission which will be about 1 hour and 30 minutes. Symphony Hall, Phoenix (75 N 2nd Street, Phoenix, 85004)

Desert Dance Theatre presents “Sister Moses: The Story of Harriet Tubman”

“Sister Moses: The Story of Harriet Tubman” is a beautiful story of a courageous woman’s determination to free her people from slavery through the Underground Railroad. She was one of America’s first liberated women of color, who fought against all odds for the sake of freedom and equality. This production brings light to the incredible accomplishments of Harriet Tubman, the anti-slavery activist. This powerful dance drama features Desert Dance Theatre with Renee Davis as Harriet Tubman, dramatic narration by Renee Morgan Brooks, African drumming and music direction by Step Raptis, accompaniment by a string quartet and traditional spirituals sung by a choral ensemble featuring baritone soloist, Greg Dansby. The unique blend of this 45-minute multidisciplinary presentation highlights the most important episodes of Harriet Tubman’s life.

A valuable educational tool in bringing this period of American History alive. It shares the knowledge and experience of the struggles and accomplishments of Harriet Tubman that will bring a source of inspiration to students and adults alike. The program follows Tubman’s life as a young slave on a Southern Plantation, her attempts to escape slavery, her work on the Underground Railroad, and her contributions to the Abolitionist movement. Slave songs from that period are featured for their significance as a means of passing information among the slaves. Hidden in the lyrics were vital escape details.
