From Score to Floor: Opera from the Ground Up

By the time an opera production hits the floorboards, composers and performers have spent years transforming theatrical ideas and music for the stage. The CU New Opera Workshop (CU NOW) gives you the rare opportunity to observe this process and share your suggestions with the composers. The interactive workshop-style performances feature acclaimed opera composers working with CU singers on new operas, on their way to professional world premieres. You'll leave with exciting insights into the creative process when you experience opera from the ground up at CU NOW!
