For its second program of the year, Northern Illinois University Opera Workshop presents a concert highlighting great moments from three centuries of Italian opera.

Performances are at 7 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 23, and 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 25, in the Recital Hall in the Music Building, at 550 Lucinda Ave., on the NIU campus in DeKalb.

The program opens with arias from two Handel operas, the famous "Largo" from "Xerxes" ("Ombra mai fu") and "Julius Caesar." These are followed by various selections from the Mozart masterpieces "Cosi fan tutte" and "Don Giovanni."

A duet from Donizettis "The Elixir of Love" and Rossinis "Cat Duet" are the 19th-century offerings, and the evening concludes with excerpts from two one-act operas by Puccini the tragic "Suor Angelica" and the comedy "Gianni Schicchi."

The program is co-directed by conductor Lucia Matos and stage director James Tucker, with assistance from faculty pianist William Koehler and graduate accompanist Andreea Zaharia.

The concerts are free and the building is accessible to all. For details, call James Tucker at (815) 753-8640.
