October 30, 2020
Due to the continuing pandemic situation, Baylor Opera Theater’s third production of 2020 will again be presented without an in-person audience. However, viewers at home will be able to enjoy composer John Duke’s sparkling comedy, Captain Lovelock, by going to the School of Music website for an online streaming opportunity. The live performance will take place on Friday, November 6, beginning at 7:00 p.m.
Serving as stage director for Captain Lovelock will be Jen Stephenson, Director of Baylor Opera, and it will be conducted by Joseph Li, Assistant Professor of Vocal Coaching. The assistant director for this production is Emily Wood, a graduate student from Aliso Viejo, California, and the pianist is Maggie Stith, a graduate student from Waco.
John Duke’s Captain Lovelock is an engaging one-act opera from 1953. It was based on The Changed Bridegroom by eighteenth-century Norwegian playwright Ludvig Holberg. Replete with mistaken identity, it tells the story of an aging widow’s misguided search for love. She wishes to marry a young army officer, but her daughters conspire with a marriage broker to show the old lady the folly of her plan.
This live performance of John Duke’s Captain Lovelock will be streamed from the stage of Baylor University’s Black Box Opera Theatre. To join the virtual audience, simply visit the School of Music website by clicking here.
