4-20-12: Why Go to the Opera?
The Lyric Opera of Baltimore wraps up its inaugural season this weekend with two performances of Faust, the classic tale of soul-selling and the quest for eternal youth. This production will feature soprano Stefania Dovhan in the role of Marguerite.
Ms. Dovhan is originally from the Ukraine, but trained at the Baltimore School for the Arts, and later at the University of Maryland. She talks with Tom about Faust, and the reception and popularity of opera in both the U. S. and abroad.
There are two performances, tonight and Sunday afternoon at the Modell Performing Arts Center at the Lyric.
