USD Opera to Perform at Siouxland Libraries

Something new at Siouxland Libraries! The University of South Dakota Opera will present Haydn’s Desert Island at the Downtown Library, 200 North Dakota Avenue, on Monday, November 20, from 6 to 7 p.m. This family-friendly event is free and open to the public; registration is not required.

The opera includes four characters: Costanza, her younger sister Silvia, her husband Gernando, and his loyal companion Enrico. Through a series of misfortunes, the women and men are separated. Ultimately, though, the opera ends happily.

If an ADA accommodation is needed, please contact the Human Relations Office at 605‑367‑8745 or at least 72 hours before the event.
