The Art of the Aria - A Master Class with Mark Adamo

Length: 3 hrs 00 mins
Intermission: Yes
Seating: General Admission
You choose your seats when you get to the theater.

Join us for a look inside the Composer Librettist Development Program Studio during this brunch and master class with ALT’s Director of Professional Development, composer/librettist Mark Adamo. During this event, four composer/librettist teams, all Resident Artists in the CLDP, will present new arias. Guest singers from the country’s leading opera houses will perform the arias, and then artists and audience members alike will be invited to discuss what they have heard. What is an aria? What is its purpose dramatically and musically within the context of a larger work? Have these arias been successful in accomplishing their goals? Did they engage you? Did they move you? Did they enrage you? Why or why not? Is the text set well for the voice? This unique look inside the writers’ studio will give you an opportunity to explore the process of developing new opera, and the opportunity to meet the next generation of operatic writers – the composers and librettists who will be writing the works you will want to hear in the future!

Composers Featured: Jeremy Howard Beck, Alla Borzova, Theo Popov and Jeffrey Dennis Smith
