Dallas Opera's Emerging Artists Program to Present Free Concert in Southlake

Tuesday, April 17, 7:00 p.m., White's Chapel United Methodist Church

The Dallas Opera Emerging Artists Program will bring "Opera in a Box: Follow Your Dreams" to Southlake on Tuesday, April 17, 7:00 p.m. in a free concert in the main sanctuary of White's Chapel United Methodist Church, 185 South White's Chapel Boulevard, Southlake.
"Opera in a Box: Follow Your Dreams" creates a portrait of what it takes to pursue a career in opera as seen through the eyes of four aspiring young opera singers. Using limited props and costumes, the singers present autobiographical portraits weaving their personal experiences with performances of selected scenes and arias from popular operas.

The production showcases the talents of The Dallas Opera's 2006-2007 Resident Young Artist, soprano Ava Pine, as well as graduate students from the music division of SMU's Meadows School of the Arts. Musical highlights include "Adele's Laughing Song" from Die Fledermaus, "Papegeno's Aria" from The Magic Flute, "Habanera" from Carmen and "There's a Boat that's Leaving Soon for New York" from Porgy and Bess.

"Opera in a Box: Follow Your Dreams" will introduce both students and adults to the world of the opera in an entertaining and lively setting. The one-hour concert will be presented without intermission and is suitable for all ages.
