Syracuse University Florence (SUF) recently staged the children’s opera “Snow White” to sold-out crowds in Florence, Italy, in collaboration with Florence’s Teatro del Maggio Musicale opera house and the Myer Children’s Hospital of Florence. Proceeds — 7,000 Euros, or about $8,400 — are being donated to the hospital to fund a new playroom.
SUF students, and students from SU’s home campus, designed and built sets and also sang in the opera alongside their Italian counterparts. SUF students visited Italian elementary schools and presented “Snow White” (in English) to schoolchildren.
