The University of Wisconsin Opera Props is a friends-group designed to encourage the UW Opera and its connected voice program in the UW School of Music. The organization has two primary goals: to promote and enhance the enjoyment of opera productions, while encouraging attendance at other vocal programs by students and faculty, and to fund annual awards to promising vocal students. Opera Props seeks to serve as a link between University Opera and the surrounding community. The group welcomes as members all who enjoy the UW Opera productions, and who take an interest in the progress of students in its program.
University Opera and University Theatre
Into the Woods by Stephen Sondheim
Be careful what you wish for! University Opera teams up with University Theatre to present Stephen Sondheim’s popular musical featuring a colorful cast of characters and one of his most memorable scores. In this story of interconnected fairy tales, familiar characters – including Cinderella, Jack and his beanstalk, Rapunzel, and Little Red Riding Hood – venture into the woods to fulfill their wishes. Half way through, it appears that everyone will live happily ever after – until the real consequences of the characters’ actions come back to haunt them. Ultimately, they find that they can indeed save themselves, but only after sacrifices are made and difficult lessons are learned.
