Brunner Main Stage Theatre

The Augustana Chamber Orchestra and OperX will present "A Midwinter Night's Dream," opera scenes from British composers, Nov.19-20.

The program is a collaborative creation from the two ensembles It takes storytelling art songs by three different British composers — Henry Purcell, Gerald Finzi and Benjamin Britten — most of which have been orchestrated, and weaves them into an imaginative program using Shakespeare's comedy as its point of departure. The winterizing of the characters and drama will include a special lighting design.

The Saturday evening performance will honor Dr. John Pfautz, professor of music, on his retirement.
