Shakespeare meets opera in fall production

The California State University, Sacramento Opera Theatre will perform scenes from operas based on works by William Shakespeare on Thursday and Friday, Dec. 5 and 6 at 8 p.m in the University Theatre.

The "Lyrical Legacy of Shakespeare" will feature excerpts from Gounod's Romeo et Juliette, Verdi's Macbeth and Otello, Vaughan Williams' Sir John in Love, and Bellini's I Capuleti e I Montecchi, are among those included in the one and one-half hour performance.

Now in its 26th year, the Opera Theatre is attracting students who have the discipline and qualifications for an opera career, says Lynn Stradley, director and professor of music. Two of Stradley's former students are currently under contract -and another is looking to sign- with Opera San Jose.

Tickets are $8 for adults, $5 for students and seniors and are available at the CSUS ticket office at 278-4323, online at, or at the door one hour prior to the performance.

Media assistance is available by contacting the CSUS public affairs office at 278-6156.
