Maryland Opera Studio (MOS) presents Ariodante. After its initial debut, this early 18th century opera by George Frideric Handel fell into oblivion for two centuries. Rediscovered in the 1970s, Ariodante is now considered a Baroque masterpiece for its emotionally evocative arias. Don’t miss this story of royalty, love and intrigue.

Sung in Italian with English supertitles.

Join the free Opera Resonates discussion in the Michelle Smith Performing Arts Library at The Clarice at 1:30PM before the Sunday performance at 3PM.

The fall opera has charmingly become known as the “white opera” since the performers wear simplified white muslin period costumes. The white opera is the art form at its most elemental—the singer, the story and the music take center stage. In addition to the MOS singers, this performance features undergraduate students from UMD Choral Activities and M.F.A. design students from the School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies. Under the direction of Craig Kier, the MOS is dedicated to the future of opera. Preparing the next generation of great singers and offering performances ranging from classic repertoire to provocative new works, they are building audiences and advancing the art that sustains them.
