The Williams Opera Workshop pairs student singers with young professionals to prepare operatic scenes and partial operas or operettas. This group offers singers the opportunity to further develop skills in stage acting, character development, and the incorporation of foreign language while working as part of an ensemble.
The workshop culminates in a final semi-staged performance in late January. Acceptance into the workshop is by audition only, with individual auditions taking place in September, around the time of the music department’s open house.
The Williams Opera Workshop, founded in 2014, is under the direction of Artist Associates Erin Casey and Paul La Rosa.
