East Stroudsburg University professors and opera enthusiasts James Maroney, Ed.D., professor of theatre and Eugene Galperin, Ph.D., associate professor of mathematics, will present “Drama, Love, Compassion, and Politics – Why Opera is Still Relevant Today” on Wednesday, February 26 at 7:30 p.m. in Cecilia S. Cohen Recital Hall of the university’s Fine & Performing Arts Center, Normal and Marguerite streets, East Stroudsburg.

The presentation, which is open to the public and free of charge, is geared toward people with little or no knowledge of opera. The discussion will feature highlights from Donizetti’s “Maria Stuarda”, Wagner’s “The Flying Dutchman”, and Puccini’s “Tosca”, all of which will be shown this spring in movie theaters nationwide as part of the Metropolitan Opera’s “Live-In-HD” series.
