through Saturday next week in

Great Living Composer
While Purcell is recognized as
one of the greatest 17th century
English writers of opera, Menotti
is, by contrast, one of the greatest
living composers. The latter has
been widely acclaimed for his
modern musical motifs and ar-
"The Telephone," which shared
the bill with another Menotti
opera last season on Broadway,
has received almost unanimous
critical acclaim. The opera was
just recently released for amateur
production, and Ann Arbor audi-
ences will be among the first to
see it as such.
First True English Opera
"Dido and Aeneas" was written
in 1689 and is recognized as the
ifrst true English opera. A by-
product of the Restoration, it was
written for production by pupils
of Josias Priest's School for Girls
in Chelsea, where singing, dancing
and acting were an important
part of the curriculum.
Tickets for the double bill will
be placed on sale in the Mendels-
sohn box office Monday, with a
special student rate prevailing for
