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.

Wisconsin State Journal interview with David Ronis: LINK

University Opera will present a special production in the Memorial Union’s Shannon Hall of Puccini’s timeless masterpiece, La Bohème.  Arguably the world’s most beloved opera, La Bohème blends riveting theatre and achingly beautiful music.  Puccini’s sumptuous, incomparable score accompanies the story of Rodolfo and Mimi, a penniless poet and a seamstress, who fall in love and suffer through heartbreak and tragedy.  Accompanying them are Rodolfo’s fellow starving artist buddies, Marcello, Schaunard, and Colline, as well as Marcello’s sassy yet bighearted girlfriend, Musetta, all surviving on laughter and the promise of love. Join us for what’s bound to be a moving and memorable production. David Ronis, director.
