Utah Opera presents an overview of Jonathan Dove's Flight and Utah Opera's January 2022 production. The class will be held in the Utah Opera Production Studios so that interested attendees can sit in for a while in the afternoon's staging rehearsal. The class is intended as an excellent way to prepare for attending one of the evening performances of the opera. Osher members will learn the story of the opera's creation, listen carefully and discuss some of the major musical moments in the opera, and learn more about artistic choices made about costuming and set for this production. The opera's plot: Described as a Marriage of Figaro for today, Flight provides the comedic yet touching story of a refugee who lives in the airport, surrounded by a colorful cast of characters who find themselves delayed in the terminal. As the delay drags on, the group learns that their overnight stay will be both physically and emotionally challenging as they navigate relationships, deception, and eventual reconciliation.
