The 9th Ward Opera Company Presents: Cox and Box and Trial by Jury


The 9th Ward Opera Company Presents: Cox and Box and Trial by Jury at the UNO Recital Hall on Saturday, August 4th, 2012 at 8:00 PM.

The operas we will be performing are Cox and Box and Trial by Jury. The libretto to Cox and Box was written by F. C. Burnand and the music is by Arthur Sullivan. This opera tells the story of two men who are living in the same apartment but do not know it! One man works during the day and one at night, so the landlord decided to take double the rent for the same space. The two men find out about the scam during the course of this opera and the results are very entertaining. Trial by Jury is a more well-known opera by Gilbert and Sullivan. This opera is set in a court of law where a jilted Angelina is suing her playboy fiancée Edwin for damages due to breaking off their engagement. The cast is filled with comic characters that are sure to keep the audience engaged and laughing.

The 9th Ward Opera Company Presents: Cox and Box and Trial by Jury

August 3rd – Allways Lounge Theater 8 PM

August 4th – UNO Recital Hall 8 PM

The Ninth Ward Opera Company is directed by UNO adjunct faculty and alumna Dr. Kathleen Westfall and includes several students, including graduate assistant Danielle Wilson.
