Miss .Kompanek and Mr. Sager are delightful in the short Menotti work. An entire program by these two accomplished artists would be an event of;first importance. "Down in the Valley" employs a large cast of principals and a chorus of over fifty. Leading roles are sung by Anne Dixon, David Dunn, Dale Sweck'er, Oliver Rephann and Joseph Steen, and lesser parts are in the capable hands of Charles Smith, % Joan Grindle. Carolyn Smith,.;.Fred, .Downs and Donald Dairy.. With Alan Shane calling figures, eight members of the Square Dance Club perform some familiar figures. The musical score includes numbers , based on folk songs: "Down in the Valley," "The Lonesome Dove," "T,he Little Black Train," "Sourwood Mountain" and "Hop Up My Ladies." Costuming, makeup, lighting and sets contribute to the overall triumph scored by Frostburg State faculty directors and students in these two contrasting short operas. Mr. Sager directs the musical portions of these productions and Miss Dorothy Stone White has overseen the dramatic preparation. Public performances are scheduled tonight and tomorrow night. It is ground for gratitude to Frostburg State that Cumberland area people are given an opportunity to enjoy one of the most popular-of the numerous Menotti 1 operatic compositions right here in Allegany County. Large public attendance would provide the encouragement to assure us more of these American short operas. -J. W. H.
