An Opera That College Students Can Relate To

Northern Michigan University music students will present a program of arias and ensembles from various operas at 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, April 8, in the Reynolds Recital Hall.

The featured work will be Gary D. Belshaw’s 2010 short chamber opera, The Worst One Ever. In this piece, the action takes place in a college dorm where three coeds are expressing frustration: Stephanie is angry at a professor; Jennifer is mad at her boyfriend; and Jessica is fed up with her father. Each of these characters feels her situation is "the worst one ever," and tension builds to a sudden and hilarious climax.

The event is free and open to the public.
