All are invited to the Duke Opera Workshop’s presentation of Get Happy! A Harold Arlen Revue. Susan Dunn will direct the performances on Saturday, November 19 at 8 pm and Sunday, November 20 at 3 pm in the Nelson Music Room, East Duke Building, on the Duke University Campus.
Harold Arlen (1905-1986) wrote some of the the biggest hits of the 1930s and ‘40s, including the entire score of The Wizard of Oz movie. This revue of some of the composer’s best-loved works includes selections from The Wizard of Oz, Cabin in the Sky, St. Louis Woman, A Star is Born, Cotton Club Parade, and Casbah. It is presented with costumes and staging, with pianist David Heid.
