Meadows Opera Theatre Presents “Sopranos Anonymous”
Elliot Hall in Highland Park Presbyterian Church, 3821 University Blvd., Dallas (75205)

Admitting that they cannot control their chronic high-note addictions, acute drama-queen compulsions and incurable obsession to steal the spotlight from others, a group of tightly wound sopranos gathers together in a meeting for the purpose of working towards recovery from their coloratura catastrophes, fioratura follies and countless diva difficulties. Conceived and directed by Courtney Stancil (a soprano).

Klyde Warren Park, 1909 Woodall Rodgers Freeway, Dallas (75201)

Soluna Festival – Meadows Symphony Orchestra Concert

The Meadows Symphony Orchestra will perform a special concert as part of the 2015 Soluna International Music & Arts Festival presented in May by the Dallas Symphony. The concert will reprise three works presented earlier in the MSO season, including Above Light by award-winning Meadows faculty composer Xi Wang; Saint-Saens’ Concerto for Piano No. 2 in G minor, featuring guest pianist Hando Nahkur, an international prizewinner and the first student accepted into Meadows’ prestigious Artist Diploma program; and Rachmaninoff’s imaginative and lively Symphonic Dances. Dallas Morning News critic Scott Cantrell praised the MSO’s earlier performance of Symphonic Dances as “absolutely touched by magic”; those who missed it will now have another chance to experience the magic themselves!
