AMERICAN SINGERS’ OPERA PROJECT ANNOUNCES PERFORMANCES OF MAGIC FLUTE AT WAKE FOREST UNIVERSITY

WITH THE MOVE TO WAKE FOREST UNIVERSITY, THE WORKSHOP HAS CONTINUED TO GROW

American Singers’ Opera Project is proud to announce that our Summer Opera Workshop will be performing Magic Flute in 2011 on the prestigious Wake Forest University campus. Moving our workshop to a campus that offers diverse summer workshops has allowed us to grow. In 2011 we will have 30+ participants for the first time since our move to North Carolina.

This year we will offer a triple cast “Magic Flute” in English with piano and harpsichord on June 9, 10 and 11 at the theatre in the new Admissions building, as well as Opera Arias and Opera Scenes in Brendle Recital Hall. In past years our participants came from as far away as Alaska, so we are truly expanding in scope. Almost every singer receives some type of scholarship, and our donors fund most of these scholarships.

This year our Opera Scenes evening will be the Robinson/Stas opera evening, and will honor the memory of Francis Robinson, former voice of the Metropolitan Opera and the uncle of our donor Roberta Robinson Stas.

Our summer opera workshop features an extremely supportive environment, and utilizes a wide range of methods to educate the whole singer, not just certain aspects of a singer's career. Classes concentrate on performance skills, crossover into Musical Theatre, artistic values, vocal and operatic history as well as professional and ethical standards.
