Baylor students with a love for performing arts have had a busy couple of weeks, as Baylor Opera Theater presented four shows of “Dido and Aeneas” last week and Baylor Theatre’s first show of the spring, “Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,” is in the middle of its run right now.
Directed by Eric Gibson, visiting lecturer of opera at the Baylor School of Music, “Dido and Aeneas” featured a split cast of students from the Baylor School of Music’s vocal division telling a love story composed in 1688 (read the Waco Tribune-Herald‘s review here). Members of the Baylor Symphony Orchestra accompanied the opera. (See photos from the opera here.)
“Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde,” the third of Baylor Theatre’s five shows in 2011-12, debuted Tuesday night and runs through Sunday. Advance tickets for all seven shows sold out in advance, but standing room only tickets go on sale each night one hour before showtime. (See photos from the play here.)
Sic ’em, Baylor performing arts majors!
