The spirit of collaboration is alive and well with Interlochen's upcoming New Opera Project. Interlochen composing students worked in tandem with faculty and performers to create scenes for new operas. The Parallel45 Production company came on board to produce, and the operas will make their world premieres at the Inside Out Gallery in Traverse City.
Interlochen opera instructor Scott Skiba visited Studio A, along with P45's Erin Anderson, composer Aliya Ultan, and performers Sage DeAgro-Ruopp (voice) and Tevan Goldberg (piano) to give us a taste of what's to come. Sage sang the final movement of Aliya's opera, "Monday: Blue's Coffee."
The New Opera Projects make their world premiere at the Inside Out Gallery in Traverse City on April 18-19 at 7pm. For tickets, visit: http://www.parallel45.org/.
