UM Frost Opera Theater concludes season with two one-act operas


The Frost Opera Theater at the University of Miami concludes its 2009 – 2010 season with the South Florida premieres of two one – act operas: Strawberry Fields by Michael Torke and A.R. Gurney, and Ballymore, Part 1: Winners by Richard Wargo.

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.  While there, she shares her love for Verdi with a Columbia University student who, in turn, teaches her about John Lennon.  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.
