Special Events

The UGA Opera Theatre will present a concert of selections from a variety of French operas in coordination with the exhibition “Opera in Print: Fin-de-siècle Posters from the Blum Collection.” The concert will include arias, duets and ensembles from operas by Bizet, Massenet, Thomas, Offenbach, Debussy, Lehar and others. This period provided some of the most beautiful and romantic music in history and has remained the basic opera repertoire to this day. Followed by a tour of the exhibition by Abigail Kosberg, Pierre Daura Center Graduate Intern.
