Opera Studio: Love Scenes
Opera Studio presents Love Scenes, with guests artists Marcus McConico, Jeffrey Madison and Ryan Deignan directing or performing alongside students in scenes from Pirates of Penzance, Hansel and Gretel, The Magic Flute, Carmen and others.

Deignan is starting his first year at UMD as a director of Concert Chorale and Vocal Jazz. He is also an opera singer.
McConico, who will be directing two scenes as well as lending his tenor voice to four scenes with graduate singers, is a soloist with the DSSO, LOON Opera and as a member of the Twin Ports Tenors.
Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for senior citizens and veterans, $8 for UMD staff and non-UMD students, and free for UMD students.
