Joint opera performance with voice faculty and students from Carleton and St. Olaf.

Thursday, February 28th, 2019
8:00 – 9:30 pm / Weitz Theater
The opera 'Swede Hollow' will be performed in Weitz Theater on 02/28/19 and 03/01/19 at 8pm.

Students from Carleton and St. Olaf College present a joint production of the opera “Swede Hollow” by Minnesota composer Ann Millikan. The opera shows vignettes into the different times and lives of immigrant families who resided in the Swede Hollow neighborhood of Saint Paul over its 100 year history.

The Andrew W. Mellon-funded Broadening the Bridge project awarded two grants to Dale Kruse (Music, St. Olaf) and Victoria Vargas (Music, Carleton) to support the collaborative engagement between Oles and Carls and the opera’s composer.
