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 scenes display the work that goes on daily under Artistic Director of Opera Studies Stephen Lord and his faculty as they prepare student singers for performing careers through NEC's comprehensive training program.
Menotti: The Telephone, or L'Amour à trois
Puccini: Scenes from La rondine
Massenet: Scenes from Manon Lescaut
Donizetti: Scenes from Don Pasquale
Perkin Opera Scenes at NEC appear under the generous sponsorship of longtime NEC supporter Winifred Perkin Gray and the Perkin Fund.
