Operas, Musicals, Recitals and Theatre
Ars Nova typically presents four to five productions a year. Each season usually includes a classical adult opera, opportunities for younger students to participate in opera roles, operettas, and musical theater, including Disney productions for younger students and audiences. Some of the productions are performed at the VBC Playhouse with live orchestra. These productions typically give Ars Nova students performance opportunities as part of their training, although some productions have open casting auditions. The degree of musical talent in the productions is impressive, especially for local theater. Productions often include guest talents, such as members of the Huntsville Ballet company, plus lovely costuming and set design to provide productions which are as beautiful to watch as to hear. Excellent direction ensures performances that are fresh and confident, with lots of humor!
On September 23rd-25th at the Von Braun Center Playhouse, Ars Nova will present Cavalleria Rusticana/Pagliacci. Supported in part by the Huntsville Arts & Cultural Grant Fund, a program of the City of Huntsville and The Arts Council, Inc.
