CSUS Opera Theatre brings
Shakespeare classic to the stage

The California State University, Sacramento Opera Theatre will present the William Shakespeare classic The Merry Wives of Windsor at 8 p.m. Friday, May 9, Thursday, May 15 and Saturday, May 17, and at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 17.

The musical misadventures of Sir John Falstaff will be presented in this three-act comic opera with full orchestra, directed by CSUS professor of music Leo Eylar with his colleague Lynn Stradley serving as producer and stage director. CSUS undergraduate and graduate students will fill a number of key rolls.

CSUS stage technician Mark Haney is the set designer for the production. Haney has been with the CSUS Department of Theatre for 25 years, in addition to working as a stage technician for 10 years with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. His setting places the show in the Elizabethan era, and is complemented by costumes by Mary Eraba, costume designer for The Sacramento Opera.

Tickets are $15 for general admission and $10 for students, seniors and SARTA members. Group rates are available. For tickets call the CSUS Ticket office at (916) 278-4323 or at (916) 766-2277. For media assistance, call the CSUS public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
