LIVESTREAM: Tufts University Opera Ensemble
Time & Location
About the Event
Join us, as the Tufts University Opera Ensemble performs operatic scenes from two new chamber operas: The Nightingale and the Rose and The Happy Prince, composed by its Music Director, Thomas Stumpf and staged by Director Carol Mastrodomenico. The librettos are adapted from two of Oscar Wilde's exquisite fairy tales, which include sacrifices reflecting a genuine love for humanity. Staging involves the challenge of creating two very different worlds: a beautiful meadow complete with trees and animals (all of whom sing!); and a town square dominated by the golden statue of the Happy Prince, who comes alive at night when a Swallow visits him. The Tufts Opera consists of undergraduate and graduate students, both music and non-music majors. Tune to WinCam Verizon Channel 36 or Comcast Channel 8. Available on our website after the livestream date. Sponsored by a generous grant from the Cummings Foundation. Register to receive a reminder email.
