Tiny Dorm Finale: Opera and Musical Theatre Night

What’s cool about this evening Opera and Musical Theatre:

  • Your opera and musical theatre favorites on the same night.
  • Scenes from Firebird Motel, an opera composed by faculty member David Conte.
  • Students were preparing for these three large-scale productions before the pandemic—both Fledermaus and Into the Woods were even sold out—and now the students get their deserved spotlight while thousands more people cheer them on than could be seated in the Concert Hall.

    Additional Faculty Involved: 
    Sun Ha Yoon, Principal Coach for Die Fledermaus and Firebird Motel
    Michael Horsley, Musical Director and pianist for Musical Theater and Into the Woods
