Spring Opera Scenes

When: Sat., April 16, 7 p.m. and Sun., April 17, 4 p.m. 2016

The Webster University Department of Music welcomes warmer weather with its traditional gift to the metro area, Spring Opera Scenes. Students perform the best bits from opera's biggest hits at 7 p.m. Saturday and 4 p.m. Sunday (April 16 and 17) at Webster University's Community Music School (535 Garden Avenue; 314-968-7032). This year's program includes scenes from Mozart's The Marriage of Figaro and Cosi fan tutte, Delibes' gorgeous Lakmé and Richard Strauss' Der Rosenkavalier. There's even a little bit of Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado on tap. Admission to both performances is free.
