Haley Smith, left, and Devin McGee perform a scene from Rossini's "The Barber of Seville" for "An Evening of Opera Scenes," coming to Cal State Bakersfield on Friday.

Opera may intimidate some, but its themes and dramatic impact are universal.

"It is storytelling and expresses emotions we struggle with in our lives — young love, tricks, love affairs, despair," music director Soo-Yeon Park said of "An Evening of Opera Scenes," playing Friday at Cal State Bakersfield.
