The Demoss Center for Worship in the Performing Arts and the Midwest Opera Theatre company will produce a late summer production of Puccini’s Suor Angelica and Mozart’s The Impresario on August 31 at the Thulin Auditorium. These two one-act operas are seeking those who can act and sing for auditions. Rehearsals will take place August 25-30. The productions feature singing as well as acting-only parts.
Dr. Maria Kanyova and Dr. Josh Jones will reunite for this production after performing during the recent Spring Concerts of Worship where they performed the finale of Act One of Puccini’s La Bohème. Dr. Maria Kanyova is an internationally known operatic soprano who has sung on some of the best-known opera stages in the world. She also is married to Judson Professor Dr. Robert Kania. Dr. Jones is our lead vocal instructor in the DCWPA and has a long list of performance credits as both soloist and ensemble member with such well-known Chicagoland ensembles at the Lyric Opera of Chicago and the Ravinia Festival and Grant Park Music Festival Orchestras.
If you have interest in participating in the production, contact Dr. Robert Kania immediately at his email address [email protected] or cell: 773-213-9475.
