Architecture and Opera

From UM: The South Florida premieres of two one-act operas — Strawberry Fields by Michael Torke and Ballymore, Part I: Winners by Richard Wargo — mark a debut collaboration between the Frost Opera Theater at the
University of Miami and the School of Architecture.  Following a class on Architecture and the Stage, the design by 5th-Year Architecture student Joe Sheridan was selected to be produced and installed on the Maurice Gusman Concert Hall stage.  Lauded by international press and an Emmy Award nominee for its PBS Great Performances broadcast, Strawberry Fields draws together memorable characters surrounding an elegant, aging woman who
perceives life in Central Park as a visit to the opera.  Ballymore, Part 1: Winners is based on a play by Ireland’s premiere dramatist, Brian Friel.  It relates the events of a fateful day in the lives of two teenagers engaged to be married in the town of Ballymore, Ireland.  Performances of the two one-act operas will take place on April 15, 16, and 17 at 8 PM, and April 18 at 3 PM
University of Miami Maurice Gusman Concert Hall.  Tickets: $20 General, $10 Seniors, $5 Students/Faculty/Staff with ID.  For information and ticket reservations, call 305.284.4886
