Opera on the GO! Is Coming to a School Near You!
Opera on the GO! brings the magic of opera to young people across the St. Louis region, through a series of workshops that culminate in an abridged performance of an opera at area schools. This year, the program will feature Rossini’s The Barber of Seville, directed by Doug Scholz-Carson with music director and accompanist Timothy Cheung. The cast features a talented ensemble of current and past Gerdine Young Artists and Richard Gaddes Festival Artists: Benjamin Taylor (pictured, as Figaro), Kyle Erdos-Knapp (as Almaviva), Elizabeth Sutphen (as Rosina), Daniel Brevik (as Bartolo), and Jennifer Panara (as Berta). Starting October 19, the program will visit twenty schools in two weeks, from Lawson Elementary to Compton-Drew Middle School to McCluer South High School.
