Williams Opera Workshop presents a preview performance of a scene from senior Brandon Hilfer’s operatic work, Actaeon. In anticipation of the March 2020 Sondheim@90@Williams Symposium, the concert also features several favorite songs from Stephen Sondheim’s musical stage works. WOW closes with Act IV of The Marriage of Figaro by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
The Williams Opera Workshop pairs student singers with young professionals to prepare operatic scenes and partial operas or operettas. This group offers singers the opportunity to further develop skills in stage acting, character development, and the incorporation of foreign language while working as part of an ensemble.
