OBU Opera Theater's presentation of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's timeless opera, "The Marriage of Figaro," will continue March 3, 4 and 5. All performances will be sung in English. The opera will begin at 7 p.m. in Raley Chapel's Yarborough Auditorium.
"The Marriage of Figaro" was the first of Mozart's three collaborations with librettist Lorenzo Da Ponte. Under the direction of Dr. Mark McQuade, OBU assistant professor of music and coordinator of vocal studies, the goal of the OBU Opera Theater is to get as many students involved in opera as possible.
Tickets for the performances are $10 for adults and $5 for students. Tickets may be purchased at the door beginning one hour before the show.
