Opera 'Inlemfmg,' 'Entertaining'
If operas were judged exclu
sively on the basis of music and
acting, the Department of Music's
presentation of "The Marriage of
Figaro" would score nearly 100
percent. The eight member cast
under the direction of Leon
Lishner and Earl Jenkins gave
Mozart's classic everything they
had, which was quite a bit.
Thus we saw fine examples of
the actor-singer combination in
performers like Rodney Walker
as Figaro, Jodene Kuxhaus as Su
sanna and Phyllis Malony as Cher
ubino. Miss Malony, in particular,
gave her role a good humor,
grace, and sparkling personality
which pleased the opening night
crowd. As thespians the entire
cast displayed some weaknesses
shyness in making gestures and
lack of motivation in responses

Sunday Night Movie
This week's Union Sunday Night

Ballroom at 7:30 p.m.
It is the delightfu) jtory of v.
R.O.T.C. school for youngsters and
is presented in print by Techni
color. never to create atmosphere or
heighten dramatic effects. And the
set which consisted almost en
tirely of four painted screens
was singularly ineffective; again
we saw an example of extreme
repetition, which could have been
eliminated with a little ingenuity.
Primarily because of the three
faults I have mentioned, "The
Marriage of Figaro" lacked the
dramatic excitement . it might
otherwise have possessed. One re
grets that the University Theatre
and the music department are no
longer cooperating to present op
eras like "La Boheme" and "The
Consul.", the current feature at How
ell Memorial is an interesting and
enttertainb.g presentation. "Th
Marriage of Figaro" will continue
to run through Saturday night.
