(Feb. 21, 2014) -- The UTSA Department of Music Lyric Theatre and Orchestra will present the opening performance of the comic opera "The Mikado" at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 21 in the Buena Vista Theatre (1.326) at the UTSA Downtown Campus. Additional performances will be 3 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 23; 7:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 28; and 3 p.m., Sunday, March 2.
"The Mikado" is one of the most famous and often-produced operas by the dynamic duo of comic opera, Gilbert and Sullivan. The team also created "H.M.S. Pinafore" and "The Pirates of Penzance," both of which performed in recent years by the UTSA Lyric Theatre.
"The Mikado," a love story set in exotic and faraway Japan, satirizes British politics and institutions without being overtly anti-British.
Cast members include UTSA voice students Jonathon Brehm, Adrien Johnson, Blaine Cowen, Kyle Lantry, Edward Tovar, Trey Hoadley, Adrian Soliz, Elise Miller, Sami Serrano and Myrna Peralez.
The ensemble is rounded out by students Randi Holst, Rachel Hicks, Brianna Garcia, Maeli Mesilemit, Meghan Henry, Christine Sidell, Maggie Sorrell, Erick Paredes and Christian Silliker.
The musical comedy is directed by William McCrary, UTSA associate professor of music, and choreographed by Michelle Pietri, UTSA music lecturer.
General admission tickets are $15. Tickets for students, military and seniors ages 55+ with ID are $10. Advance tickets for opening night are available by calling Cindy Solis at 210-458-5685 or visiting the UTSA Department of Music website.
