Ten years ago, in February 2012, Dr. Dawn Padula launched her first production as Director of Opera Theatre at Puget Sound. The show was Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Pirates of Penzance, a rollicking, energetic ensemble-based operetta that provided many opportunities on stage for Puget Sound students, allowing them to learn the craft of opera theater. It was an audience favorite, and it received third place in the American Prize’s competition for collegiate opera.
After the remote year and a half and last year’s virtual opera scenes production, Dr. Padula is relaunching that 2012 production 10 years later, a show which at its core is lighthearted and whimsical, as a way to welcome us all back together to the stage and audiences back to the seats!
Four performances are being offered from Thursday, April 7 through Sunday, April 10. Tickets available online or at the door. This event will not be live streamed.
