(Course: Producing Opera: Staging the Human Condition)
Research and Capstone Project for the University of Richmond SSIR (Sophomore Scholars in Residence) Program.
What better than to use the knowledge gained during the first semester to stage a production during the second semester? Students worked together to produce a 30-minute opera/musical theatre scenes program, completing all aspects of the production themselves: auditioning singers, casting, directing (stage and music directing), costume design and building, set design and building, lighting design and installation, promotional materials and finally, offering their production to the campus community. Faculty mentors assisted as needed, offering direction and guidance across the course of the semester.
