The annual one-day festival provides free community engagement activities designed to introduce those unfamiliar with opera to its theatrical and musical drama in short, informative sessions.
At 11 a.m., Professor Johnson will host a free introductory session on Mozart’s The Magic Flute for children and families, with performances by vocalists who will appear in the Frost Opera Theater’s production of the popular opera in February 2013. Then, from noon to 4 p.m., vocal students will perform “Arias on the Hour” where they will discuss their curriculum, and the rigors of preparing for major operatic roles and the challenges of being an under-study. In addition, motion pictures focusing on opera will be shown all day long in Clarke Recital Hall. For more information, click here.
