Opera at Shoreline Community College

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Shoreline Community College’s Opera 2013 offers three shows open to the public at 7:30pm 
  • Friday February 22nd, 
  • Saturday 23rd, and 
  • Sunday 24th.

Dr Charles Enlow, Producer and Music Director, said “This year we offer a diverse sampling of nearly three hundred years of opera repertoire. 

"In addition to the major work on the program – Purcell’s Baroque masterpiece, Dido and Aeneas – we have included excerpts from Handel’s Serse, Bizet’s Carmen, Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin, and Kurt Weill’s Street Scene. Love is the powerful force that motivates and moves each of these varied operatic stories. Whether it is the love and ultimate betrayal of a warrior prince or a rebellious gypsy cigarette girl, the youthful infatuation of a young woman with a handsome aristocrat, or the coming-of-age story of a young woman struggling to rise above her lower class urban surroundings - all of these operatic gems have important stories to tell, and lessons to teach, about risk-taking and growth.”

Cultural and historical diversity is another conspicuous theme of this workshop. Languages presented in their own historical and cultural contexts represented in this program include English/American, Russian, Spanish, French, and Italian. This diversity of repertoire, language, and cultural and historical contexts also serve as potent educational resources from which our workshop students are able to explore a rich and varied musical and theatrical journey.”

This year we celebrate our forty-first year of opera productions at the College. As an opera training program for young singers, we have attained an enviable position within our educational community by continuing to produce high-quality productions while at the same time providing unparalleled educational opportunities for our students.” 

The college is located at 16101 Greenwood Ave N, Shoreline 98133. The production is in the 1600 building.
