Opera: "Miss Havisham's Wedding Night" and "Gallantry"
O'Donnell Auditorium

Stories of a jilted bride’s wedding night and a soap opera parody will be told on the O’Donnell Auditorium stage when Nebraska Wesleyan performs two operas, “Miss Havisham’s Wedding Night” and “Gallantry.”

Taken from an episode of Charles Dickens’ “Great expectations,” “Miss Havisham’s Wedding Night” follows the jilted bride who continues to relive the disastrous day of her intended wedding — something she has been doing for years. As she imagines what her life would have been like if their relationship turned out differently, Miss Havisham prepares to tell her chambermaid all about men.

“Gillantry” is a sharp parody of a soap opera complete with commercial interruptions. The opera tells the story of surgeon Dr. Gregg who declares his love for anesthetist Lola Markham, except Lola is already engaged to Donald Hopewell who happens to be a patient in Dr. Gregg’s operating room.

Admission to the operas is $12 for adults and $6 for seniors and students. Tickets can be purchased at the door. 

O'Donnell Auditorium is located inside the Rogers Center for Fine Arts at 50th Street and Huntington Ave.

Earth Week Lecture: Donald Wilhite: "Understanding and Assessing Climate Change and Its Implications for Nebraska"
Olin B Lecture Hall

Nebraska Wesleyan kicks off Earth Week activities with a lecture by Donald A. Wilhite, professor emeritus of applied climate science in the School of Natural Resources at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. 

Wilhite's lecture is titled, "Understanding and Assessing Climate Change and Its Implications for Nebraska." In this lecture, participants will learn how to prepare for the challenges associated with climate change in order to avoid or reduce the deleterious effects of climate change.

Prior to teaching, Wilhite served as director of the School of Natural Resources from 2007-2012. He is the founding director of the National Drought Mitigation Center in 1995 and the International Drough Information Center in 1989. His research and outreach activities have focused on issues of drought monitoring, planning, mitigation, and policy; the use of climate information in decision-making and climate change.

Earth Week Lecture: Kelly Clancy: "The (Good) News About Climate Change Politics?"
Olin B Lecture Hall

In celebration of Earth Week, Kelly Clancy, assistant professor of political science at Nebraska Wesleyan University, will present the lecture, "The (Good) News About Climate Change Politics?"

In this talk, Clancy will focus on the good news: the debate over climate change is no longer scientific, but cultural. We're at an ideal point in our country's history to overcome the cultural misconceptions surrounding climate change and make meaningful change to secure our planet's future and the change that needs to start with college students.

Clancy's interest in global environmental politics focuses on the intersection of culture and science. Her first book, "The Politics of Genetically Modified Organisms of the United States and Europe," was published by Palgrave Macmillan in 2016. She earned her PhD in political science from Rutgers University.

Her talk will be held in Olin B Lecture Hall, located inside the Olin Hall of Science. It is free and open to the public.
