UNL Opera to perform Albert Herring in November

Time is a glutton, time is a thief.

Youth must challenge him as he flies…

This line from Benjamin Britten’s delightful comedy, Albert Herring, is the perfect summation of the opera’s message: Time passes inexorably -- seize the day while you can! The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Opera will be performing Albert Herring on November 8 and 10 in the Glenn Korff School of Music Kimball Recital Hall.

UNL team uncovers more archeological treasures

Shoveling and sweeping to expose still-hidden portions of a 1,600-square-foot marble mosaic that dates to Roman times, a UNL archeological team this past summer unearthed a new treasure in southern Turkey.

Lying face down in more than a millennium of soil was a life-size marble head, the remnant of a sculpture of the goddess Aphrodite – still beautiful, though scarred by chips on its nose and face.

The sculpture’s body was missing, likely incinerated in a lime kiln many centuries ago.
