UNO documentary: Bon Operatit!

What: Bon Operatit!, a well-seasoned trio of classical singers who take opera to the masses. New Orleans opera singers Jesse Nolan, Lauren Mouney Gisclair and Mary Penick Akin serve up a pitch-perfect pairing of opera and musical theater hits in diverse venues.

Film by: UNO student and filmmaker Elyxzedra Arendt

Editor’s Note: NolaVie partners with students of UNO professor László Zsolt Fülöppairing them with artists, non-profits, environmental groups, and cultural entities to facilitate a live curriculum that results in a short documentary. In this short doc, entitled In “Bon Operatit! Bringing Opera to the Big Easy,” UNO film student Elyxzedra Arendt interviews the singers and drops in on a Bourbon Street performance.


The Film and Theatre Department of UNO and NolaVie present this series of short films produced by the students in Laszlo Fulop’s documentary class. Read Renee Peck’s column about the program here.
