Free performance today: “The Magical Music of Shakespeare” from the Knoxville Opera Company

February 21, 2014

“The Magical Music of Shakespeare” is the theme of a special free Knoxville Opera Company performance at Pellissippi State Community College today (Monday, Feb. 24.)

The KOC program features musical selections from operas and Broadway musicals that were inspired by Shakespeare plays, among them, “Romeo and Juliet,” “Hamlet,” and “Othello.” Performers include University of Tennessee Opera Theatre alumni. Brian Salesky is executive director and conductor of the Knoxville Opera.

“The Magical Music of Shakespeare” is at 2 p.m. in the Goins Building Auditorium on the Hardin Valley Campus, 10915 Hardin Valley Road. The event is free and the community is invited.

“We’re delighted to have the Knoxville Opera come to present a program of Shakespeare-inspired opera,” said Carol Luther, professor of English at Pellissippi State. “Shakespeare’s influence has spread to many other arts. The musical adaptations reveal new facets in Shakespeare’s plays and once again confirm his genius.”
