Opera Company Performance

By Jen Lassen

On March 31, the Bucknell Opera Company and dancers from the department of theatre and dance collaborated to perform an evening of Zarzuela, a Spanish lyric-dramatic genre that alternates between spoken and sung scenes. An orchestra complemented the performers. This cultural, rhythmical and lively performance lasted about an hour and a half long and was widely attended by students, faculty and locals. Annie Schulenberg ’13, member of the Bucknell Opera Company, discussed her favorite thing about the performance. “We got to work with the different dancers and it was really cool to see the other side of performing in their art form, and working with a conductor and a professional orchestra was an amazing experience because it really tested our musicality,” said Schulenberg.
