Williams Opera Workshop

Tue Jan 23|Chapin Hall|7:00 PM|free

The Williams College Department of Music presents a performance by Williams Opera Workshop (WOW) on Tuesday, Jan. 23, at 7 p.m. in Chapin Hall on the Williams College campus. This free event is open to the public.

This year’s performance offers wonderful highlights from the operatic repertoire including The Magic Flute and Marriage of Figaro by Mozart; The Death scene from Boris Godunov by Modest Mussorgsky; Lensky’s aria from Eugene Onegin (Tchaikovsky); Scenes from Threepenny Opera (Kurt Weill); Selections from Pirates of Penzance (Gilbert & Sullivan); and the barcarolle from Les Contes d’Hoffman (Jacques Offenbach).

Williams Opera Workshop is a project involving talented Williams student singers working together to prepare operatic scenes. This offers singers the opportunity to further develop skills in stage acting and character development while working as part of an ensemble. The workshop culminates in this final concert performance. Co-directed by Erin Nafziger and Keith Kibler.
