—presented by Opera UCLA, UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, Center for 17th- & 18th-Century Studies, and William Andrews Clark Memorial Library
There are four performances of the opera over the course of two weeks:
Saturday, June 3; Sunday, June 4; Saturday, June 10; and Sunday, June 11.
Join us for the Southern California premiere of a new opera based on Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park, with music by renowned British composer Jonathan Dove to a brilliant libretto by Alasdair Middleton. Originally composed to be performed in great houses, the story of poor Fanny Price’s struggle to find happiness among her rich relatives will come to life in the beautiful Clark Drawing Room. The original piano four-hand orchestration will be played by Victoria Kirsch and Douglas Sumi.
