Free! University of Tampa Opera Theater's The Beautiful Bridegroom
General Event Information
The University of Tampa Opera Theater presents Dan Shore's one act opera "The Beautiful Bridegroom" directed by Marisa Arzillo Saturday, April 27 at 2:00 pm as well as 7:30 pm at the Falk Theater.
This is the Florida premier of "The Beautiful Bridegroom" and is free to the public.
In "The Beautiful Bridegroom," a widow decides to get a husband for herself rather than her unmarried daughters. This causes some family furor, and the local matchmaker and the widow's maid get in on the action with its twists and turns. Indeed, "The Beautiful Bridegroom" does sound "Mozart-ian." (Richard Duckett TELEGRAM & GAZETTE STAFF) Boston composer Dan Shore describes his work as a "Mozart pastiche." In the nicest possible way.
And in an interesting bit of programming, UT's Opera Theater is presenting "The Beautiful Bridegroom" as part of a double bill with some comedic scenes from Gilbert and Sullivan's "The Mikado"
