Lisa Maxedon, head of vocal studies and director of opera and musical theatre, hosted an opera workshop for the ninth year.

 

It is a fall course and ensemble, where students learn to put on a production. They spend at least six hours a week practicing.

 

This year’s theme was fairy tales and children’s stories and included songs from Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Cinderella” and Seymour Barab’s “Little Red Riding Hood” opera.
