59th season of Opera in the Ozarks opens

Tuesday, June 23, 2009
First-nighters at the 59th season of Opera in the Ozarks were treated to a double bill Friday evening, which included "Pagliacci" and "Hansel & Gretel." Shown are Meaghan Heath, of Houston, Texas, as Hansel, and Monica Thakkar of Houston, Texas as Gretel. The two productions Friday were underwritten by War Eagle Mill, owned by the late Marty Roenigk, who died in an accident last Thursday evening in Iowa. There was a moment of silence before the show, honoring Roenigk's life-long contributions to not only the opera but his adopted community at large. Productions will continue through July 17.
