Rowan Opera Company offers both comedy and drama with two shorter works: Giovanni Battista Pergolesi’s intimate comedic intermezzo, "La serva padrona" directed by Jon Garrison, is about a clever young maid who finagles her way into marrying her employer; and Henry Purcell’s "Dido and Aeneas," directed by Marian Stieber, is a tragic tale of the love between Dido, the Queen of Carthage, and the Trojan hero Aeneas...and the despair brought on by evil forces intent on tearing them apart. Accompanied by the Rowan University Orchestra conducted by Salvatore Scarpa, the productions are performed in English.
