Now the opera makes yet another debut its Colorado regional and collegiate premiere beginning at 7 p.m. Friday, October 26, and continuing through Sunday, October 28, at the University of Colorado at Boulder's Macky Auditorium. But before the first aria of the CU Opera production rings out, a series of free on-campus activities will set the mood, beginning today at noon with a brown-bag preview with cast and crew in the Music Theatre in the Imig Music Building. A screening of the film follows this evening at 7 p.m. in Muenzinger Auditorium; tomorrow, Sociology chair Michael Radelet will lead a lecture and panel discussion on capital punishment at 7:30 p.m. in room G1B30 of the Duane Physics Building. Finally, author Prejean and Heggie will appear in person at 2 p.m. on October 26 in Grusin Music Hall, in preparation for that evening's first performance.
Admission to the opera ranges from $10 to $35; call 303-492-8008 or visit www.cuconcerts.org for tickets and information.
