The Mary Morgan Moore Department of Music and Lamar Opera Theatre will present a double bill of Italian verismo music, staged and costumed, for two one-act operas by Giacomo Puccini: Le Villi and Suor Angelica. These two operas represent the "bookends" of the composer's life and showcase the evolution of his compositional style from his first opera, Le Villi, released in 1884, to one of his last, Suor Angelica, which premiered in 1918. The span of so many years offers performers and audience alike insight into the composing genius of Puccini.
Tickets are $10 each, cash only. (409) 880-8144 to reserve tickets.
