With words and music by Michael Ching and conceived by Dean Anthony, Speed Dating Tonight! is a one-act comic opera that explores the human desire for connection. We meet many different characters, some bold, some shy, some ready to start a relationship, and some just getting over their exes. The opera is made up of 90-second dates that give us a peek into each character’s life as they try to find their perfect match.

OperaTerps is a student-led ensemble affiliated with the UMD School of Music. This production is generously sponsored by the Pepsi Enhancement Fund.

The Art of Becoming, Power and Passion: The More I Am, The More I Become.

The Clarice’s BlackLight Summit aims to activate the unimagined possibilities in dance–it is a convening that envisions dance as a conduit to galvanize resilience and inventiveness. Returning for a second year, the 2022 summit explores three fundamental inquiries: “What/who are we becoming?” “How do we return to one another?” and “Does progress equal healing?” Throughout the 2021–22 season, the BlackLight Summit will continue to foster community connection by facilitating a series of mentoring and professional development opportunities, conversations and performances.

Health + Safety: There may be COVID safety policies such as mask requirements in place when you attend this event. Please see our health & safety page for the most up to date information about attendance!

Registration is required for all BlackLight Summit events. Registration is free and open to all! Please note: BlackLight Summit registration does not include access to Far From the Norm. For tickets to this performance, please visit go.umd.edu/fftn.
