DO?A ANA LYRIC OPERA TO PERFORM FAMOUS MOZART OPERA

The Doa Ana Lyric Opera will perform Mozart's "Marriage of Figaro" at 7:30 p.m. March 5 and 3 p.m. March 6 at Atkinson Recital Hall at New Mexico State University.

The opera is a succession of awkward and humorous situations enlivened with sparkling repartee. "Marriage of Figaro" has been captivating audiences with its irresistible charm and the melodic beauty of many of its numbers since its opening in May 1786. Mozart collaborated with librettist Lorenzo da Ponte to produce this comedic romp, perhaps the most well-known and loved of his operas.

Tickets for the opera will be available at the Pan American Center Ticket Office and sold separately from NMSU Choirs' season tickets.

For more information, contact Andrew Zimmerman at 575-646-1986, or the Pan Am Center Ticket Office at 575-646-1420.
