Assistant Professor Jeff Rebudal created new choreography for La Traviata, Michigan Opera Theatre's season finale.
"I...enjoyed the performances of the...opera singers, the choreography...and everything else," wrote one audience member. The dancers were both participants in the action of the opera, and symbolic of thematic elements in the plot.
As seen in these photos by John Gritaitis, Beth Stolzenfeld, Bryan Strimpel, and Brandon Richardson, WSU dance majors, were featured dancers in the production.
