ARTWORK BY AMANDA R. WILSON

Join us for an evening of scenes and arias from your favorite operas by composers whose work championed social and political change! Students from the JMU Opera Theater are poised to launch their careers, and this concert is your opportunity to see an incredible core of future stars perform songs from Verdi’s Aida and Otello, Puccini’s Madama Butterfly and Turandot, and Bernstein’s Candide. This concert also features a scene from an exciting new opera by doctoral vocalist Miracle Ogbor based on her own artistic struggles in Nigeria, as well as other international graduate musicians who bring personal perspectives from underrepresented cultures.
