The Kent State University Opera ‘I Feel an Aria Coming On” is this Saturday

The Kent State University Opera will present "I Feel an Aria Coming On." on Saturday, March 8 at 7:30 p.m., in Ludwig Recital Hall

If you love Opera (and especially if you love Arias) then you will love the Kent State University Opera’s “I Feel and Aria Coming On” that will feature such crowd pleasing favorites as “Carmen”, “The Marriage of Figaro”, “Pagliacci”, “La Traviata” and “The Ballad of Baby Doe”.

"The idea behind this concert is that the performers will be singing arias that inspired them to become singers," said co-director of the opera program, Marla Berg. Our Porthouse friends remember Marla as the beautiful Mother Superior in The Sound of Music.

Another Porthouse Theatre star, Tim Culver, who performed as Amos in “Chicago”, and sang the longest note in history during “Mister Cellophane”, will also be performing.

As Marla puts it, “performers include the voice faculty of the Kent State School of Music, recent graduates, guests and the current students of the opera program. There will be soaring moments of exhilarating singing and surprising elements of complete fun."

Tickets for the performance are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors and Kent State University faculty and staff, $10 for groups of 10 or more patrons, $8 for Non-Kent State students, $5 for children and free for full-time Kent Campus undergraduate students.

Tickets are available weekdays 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Performing Arts Box Office, located in the lobby of the Roe Green Center in the Center for the Performing Arts at 1325 Theatre Drive on the Kent campus of Kent State University. The Performing Arts Box Office accepts Visa, MasterCard and Discover, in addition to cash and checks.

The Ludwig Recital Hall box office will open one hour prior to the performance for walk up sales, and will accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover. Tickets and more information are available by calling 330-672-ARTS (2787) or click here for more information.
