There is a wide range of operas that may never see their way to a full production at NEC, but that can be sampled in the intimate, showcase setting of an opera scenes evening. These concerts display the work that goes on daily in NEC's Vocal Arts program, as faculty prepare student singers for performing careers. NEC's Chair of Opera Studies Joshua Major, in addition to directing some of the fully staged opera productions at NEC, oversees these evenings of scenes and arias throughout the year.
Tonight's program, featuring first year vocal students, includes scenes from a wide range of operas from L'Egisto to Wozzek, directed by Joshua Major, Steven Goldstein, and Patricia Goble.
Perkin Opera Scenes at NEC appear under the generous sponsorship of longtime NEC supporter Winifred Perkin Gray and the Perkin Fund.
