Opera Double Feature: Giacomo Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi and Michael Ching’s Buoso’s Ghost

Friday, April 13, 2018 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.

UCF Opera commemorates the centennial of Puccini's comedic opera Gianni Schicchi with fully staged performances, featuring UCF students and UCF Opera director Thomas Potter in the title role, and accompanied by an orchestra made up of UCF students and members of the Florida Symphony Youth Orchestra.

During intermission, immediately following the Puccini opera, the singers continue the story with American composer Michael Ching's opera Buoso's Ghost. The Donati family plots to pin Buoso's death on Schicchi, but he once again outwits them and ends up with even more of the estate in his possession. Both operas will be sung in English with super-titles.

UCF Celebrates the Arts is an annual eight-day showcase featuring interactive exhibitions of student artwork and performances in Visual and Performing Arts. Tickets will be available starting March 1. For a complete schedule, ticket reservations and other information, visit the festival’s website at www.arts.ucf.edu.
