    is really cool At a larger school you probably wouldn t have that At really really big schools with really big music departments they can scarcely give opportunities to their own music majors let alone math and biology majors A Total Production Experience This year students in the Opera Production class are also responsible for designing the set and constructing props and costumes We ve divided the cast into costume puppet and set design teams Boresi said It s a total production experience for them They re learning about Mozart how to perform the piece and getting an introduction in creating a production and concept Boresi who has taught J Term classes at Carthage before is a librettist director and theatre instructor who has written operas that have been performed nationally He is grading the students on their attendance participation how well they learn their music and the occasional pop quiz The very first day there was a pop quiz Berg said Matt likes to have that academic element in the class the history of the work the standard building blocks of opera the terminology I like that a lot Music professor Gregory Berg works with students during rehearsal I m especially excited for the music theatre students who are in the class because I think they really deepen their expressive abilities by singing opera Berg continues It s one thing to stand on a stage and belt out a love song that s in their own style There s something familiar about that Here you re singing a love song but it s in The Magic Flute and the music is by Mozart You have to learn to be just as real and authentic with your emotions even though the music you re expressing is 250 years old It s like being on a treadmill and putting it on tilt You have to work harder Not Your Typical Magic Flute Production The Magic Flute tells the story of Tamino a handsome young prince who is asked by the Queen of the Night to rescue her daughter Pamina from Sarastro a high priest The Queen gives Tamino a magic flute to use in times of danger and he sets off to save Pamina with the help of bird catcher Papageno who is desperate for a wife Sarastro has in fact kept Pamina from her evil mother to protect her He decides that Tamino and Pamina may be together once they endure a series of ordeals to purify their hearts We re setting it in modern day Wisconsin The music is Mozart but we ve added hip hop and dance and modern dress It s a show that s full of magic and fantasy Boresi said but this is not your typical Magic Flute production We re setting it in modern day Wisconsin The music is Mozart but we ve added hip hop and dance and modern dress We re making it accessible to everybody added Dan who as Tamino will
