Ouachita Baptist University’s School of Fine Arts will release an adapted version of the opera Gianni Schicchi by Giacomo Puccini in an online, pre-recorded format beginning Sunday, Jan. 31, which can be viewed for free at obu.edu/opera2021.
While typically a fall production, Ouachita’s opera had to be reimagined for both the cast and audiences due to COVID-19. Students and faculty began preparing in Spring 2020 and finished recording in late Fall 2020. Editing and post production then began and continued through January 2021.
