Opera in the Ozarks season complete

Tuesday, July 22, 2014
The relatives of the late Buoso Donati are distraught at learning they have been left out of their formerly beloved relative's will.

The 2014 Opera in the Ozarks season is now in the history books. Final figures on attendance have yet to be calculated but are expected to be on par with previous years. Forty-eight singers and more than 25 orchestra members from across the U.S., along with dozens of artistic and support staff, produced four opera and one traveling opera show for the eight-week season. In four short weeks of rehearsal opera parts, music and staging were memorized -- three in Italian and one in English. The summer workshop offers the best collegiate talent in the country the opportunity to participate in an intensive period of training under the tutelage of excellent professionals and teachers from several major universities. They have the chance to participate in one of the top 10 opera workshops in the nation. Many of the names you hear at Opera in the Ozarks today will be the names you hear at major opera companies in the future.
