Last Call for Opera – Tonight!

Utah opera RESIDENT artists TO PERFORM IN Uintah COUNTY

VERNAL – Uintah County students can enjoy live professional opera in their own schools when Utah Opera Resident Artists perform for them throughout the week April 7-11, 2014. Community members are invited to hear the artists in a performance of live opera on Thursday evening at Vernal Middle School Auditorium.

During their tour, Utah Opera Resident Artists will offer age-appropriate performances of the lively and colorful “Who Wants to be an OPERA STAR?” for elementary schools and “Opera 101” for secondary students.

Based on the format of popular game shows, “Who Wants to be an OPERA STAR?” allows the visiting artists to teach the fundamentals of opera to younger students. The artists act as contestants who demonstrate their answers with vocal selections while the children serve as the studio audience. Students actively participate when they join the contestants in clapping rhythms, singing melodies and identifying emotions in the music.

“Opera 101” is an introduction to the art form of opera. Utah Opera Resident Artists introduce the elements of opera and drama by performing arias and scenes from popular opera.

In-school performances for students are offered free-of-charge to Utah schools thanks to partial funding through the Utah State Legislature’s Professional Outreach Programs in the Schools (POPS) program.

Tonight, Thursday, April 10 at 7:30 PM, the Utah Opera Resident Artists will perform an hour-long updated Western version of Donizetti’s famous The Elixir of Love is in English. In the opera, sassy cowgirl Adina can’t seem to get shy ranch hand Nemorino to declare his love for her. When a rival appears on the scene, Nemorino uses a magic love potion to give him courage. Tickets are $5 per person or $10 per family (up to 6 people). Tickets can be purchased in advance through Uintah Arts Council at http://uintahartscouncil.com/ or will be available at the door.

Local Business Supporters of the Arts

This is a shout out and a big “Thank You” to all of the businesses in town that continue to allow us to hang event posters in their windows. While it’s fun to be getting so many “new” large, corporate businesses in the area, those corporations often have strict policies which won’t allow us to hang a poster in the window or on a door, or leave any other type of flyer or card letting their customers know what may be going on in the arts.

Advertising in the newspapers and on the radio is very expensive. Our local radio stations and newspapers cut us a pretty good deal and are very good to work with us… but it’s still very expensive and we could spend ourselves into oblivion trying to get the word out to the community. So… we bought our own Xerox printer to save money and have it available “on-demand”. It paid for itself in about 8 months. But we still have to buy paper and pay Xerox a per-copy fee. It’s a good deal but not free. Social media and bulk e-mail have become very important to us, along with any other “free” word-of-mouth advertising we can think of. Banners are expensive and you have to put up 8-12 to try and cover the valley.

Anyway, the bottom line is… we need to be thankful for and express our thanks to those local businesses that still allow us to hang a poster. Some have stopped letting anyone hang posters, over time, and some businesses are no longer there. If you visit one of the businesses that has a poster for a local event in it, thank them for supporting local groups and activities.It helps us keep ticket costs down and continue to function. It helps us bring in and/or promote great talent… artists, musicians, dancers and actors… at a pretty amazing price.

And thank you for coming to our events and supporting us. Winston Churchill said “The arts are essen­tial to any com­plete national life. The State owes it to itself to sus­tain and encour­age them….Ill fares the race which fails to salute the arts with the rev­er­ence and delight which are their due.” If you don’t come and partake, we cease to exist.
