Opera Meets Television
Otterbein University Opera Theatre will present two one-act operas: Gallantry by Douglas Moore and The Life and Love of Joe Coogan by Paul Salerni, libretto by Kate Light at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 9 and 10, and 2 p.m. on Sunday, Nov. 11, in Riley Auditorium at the Battelle Fine Arts Center, 170 W.

Gallantry is based on an episode of a stereotypical 1950s hospital soap opera complete with commercial breaks. The drama unfolds as Dr. Gregg relentlessly pursues Lola, a lovely young nurse. Tension arises as Dr. Gregg prepares to perform surgery on Lola’s fiancé.
The Life and Love of Joe Coogan is based on an episode of the Dick Van Dyke Show written by Carl Reiner. It centers around Rob’s jealousy over one of Laura’s old boyfriends and the comedy that ensues when things don’t turn out exactly as planned.

The program continues with a minimalist piece for marimbas, Le Papillon by Richard LeVan. Fresh from Denmark and new to our repertoire is Per Anreasson’s Tin Play, an eclectic assemblage of non-pitched and mostly non-traditional instruments revolving around polymetric structures. Larry Spivack’s novelty piece, Quartet for Paper Bags, will both amuse as well as stretch your acceptance of what really constitutes music. The Otterbein Marimba Band presents Clair Omar Musser’s famous scoring of Eustasio Rosales’ Bolero, followed by arrangements of two Turkish rondos: Mozart’s Rondo Alla Turca and Dave Brubeck’s Blue Rondo á la Turk. The program concludes with Gainsborough, a classic for the percussion ensemble by Thomas Gauger.
