Town Hall
Maryland Opera Studio New Work Reading 2018
Friday, February 9, 2018 . 7:30 PM

Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Gildenhorn Recital Hall, General Admission.

In a small town, somewhere in America, a community gathers to ask their senator questions about the politics of the day, and the proceedings are live-streamed on social media by a young intern. But the conversation turns into a heated debate with mortal stakes when a retired librarian takes the event hostage.

Maryland Opera Studio students premiere an opera by the winner of the annual Opera Composition Contest. Launched in 2017, the contest is a joint initiative of the Maryland Opera Studio and Artist Partner Program to support the cultivation and performance of new work.

Free, no tickets required.

Maryland Opera Studio: New Work Reading of Town Hall

Saturday, September 16, 2017 . 6 PM

Venue: Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Gildenhorn Recital Hall

In a small town, somewhere in America, a community gathers to ask their Senator questions about the politics of the day. But the conversation turns into a heated debate with mortal stakes when a retired librarian takes the event hostage, and forces a young intern to live-stream the proceedings on social media. Theo Popov (composer) and E.M. Lewis (librettist) are recipients of the Second Annual Opera Composition Commission, a partnership between the Maryland Opera Studio and the Artist Partner Program of The Clarice that supports the creation of new opera work. This performance is a preview of the completed work, which will premiere in February 2018.
