Spring Opera Workshop

April 21 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm


See the Spring Opera Workshop at 2 p.m. Sunday, April 21, in the H. F. Johnson Recital Hall.

The Opera Workshop has a long tradition in Carthage’s Music Department, and students have collaborated with faculty directors such as Professor Greg Berg and Allison Hull, adjunct faculty of music, on a wide range of operatic repertoire, such as Gilbert and Sullivan’s comedic pieces, Mozart’s classic operettas, Franz Schubert’s art songs, and Offenbach’s soaring melodic works. In the past, the Opera Workshop has also debuted original pieces composed by faculty members, namely Prof. Berg. His full-length opera “Black September” debuted in 2016, and his one-act opera “Birds of a Feather: A Magic Flute Sequel” premiered in Jan. 2020 to honor the life and legacy of Ray Watson, a music theatre student at Carthage who passed away in Dec. 2019. Most recently, the Opera Workshop premiered Prof. Berg’s latest one-act opera “Woman and Children: a Story of Titanic Survivors” in Nov. 2021.

Prof. Berg teaches private voice, oversees Carthage’s Opera Workshop, accompanies the Carthage Choir, and teaches Opera History and Vocal Diction and Literature. Prof. Berg was also the music director for Carthage productions of “The Magic Flute,” “The Elixir of Love,” “The Marriage of Figaro,” “Gianni Schicchi,” “Suor Angelica,” “Il Tabarro,” “Pomme d’Api,” “The Beggar’s Opera,” and scenes from “The Pirates of Penzance.” Prof. Hull is a frequent and accomplished performer in opera, concert, and recital, known for her versatility as singer, actor, and teacher alike. Prof. Hull’s notable stage work includes: the title role in “Ravel’s L’enfant” at Milwaukee Opera Theater; “Cherubino” and “Hilde Brun” with Fresco Opera, Lady Angela in the Skylight Opera Theater’s production of “Gilbert and Sullivan’s Patience,” and more.

This event is free and open to the public (no tickets required). Watch also from home through our livestream.
