About

Cal State San Bernardino Opera Theatre director Stacey Fraser will produce and direct back-to-back performances of Robert Xavier Rodriguez’s compositions Monkey See Monkey Do and Tango on Friday, May 12, and Saturday, May 13.

 

Both performances will begin at 7:30 p.m. in the CSUSB Performing Arts Building Recital Hall. Tickets for the show are $15 for general admission; $12 for senior citizens, CSUSB faculty and staff; and $8 for students.

 

The first performance, Monkey See Monkey Do, is a children’s opera based on a Mexican folktale, and features music that integrates both the European aesthetic and the traditional folk music of Mexico. In the spotlight will be CSUSB opera theatre students and San Francisco-based guest soprano, Morgan Harrington.

 

Tango is a one-act comic concert opera for tenor solo and chamber ensemble and also integrates a confluence of musical cultures: that of the Argentinian tango tradition as well as the European operatic tradition. The piece will showcase professional dancers Faith Jensen-Ismay and Robby Johnson of the critically acclaimed San Diego-based dance company, Mojalet Dance Collective.

  

Performances will be held on May 12, 13, 14 @ 7:30pm

 

Tickets: $15 General / $12 Senior / $8 Student
