Additional performances-and a few surprise appearances-are being added all the time. For the most up-to-date performance schedule or to have The Pagliacci Project come to your location, contact Elizabeth Cooper, Education and Production Coordinator at 512.610.7683 or email@example.com.
The unique combination of forces between a major university music program and an established opera company gives ALO the ability to extend its reach into the community in a way it would be unable to do through its main stage season alone. The Pagliacci Project also provides UT students with expanded performing experience and the opportunity to benefit from additional exposure to professional artists. "Austin Lyric Opera is delighted that this new partnership is underway, and that we are able to help cultivate the next generation of operatic talent," says Richard Buckley, ALO's Artistic Director and Principal Conductor. "It is our hope that this will be the cornerstone to a long lasting relationship with the Butler Opera Center."
Seven UT students will earn college credit for their participation in The Pagliacci Project, led by a stage director who is a UT Master's candidate. Musical leadership will be provided by ALO's artistic staff, and the lead tenor role of Canio will be performed by Jason Baldwin, a gifted professional tenor and established artist who has performed leading roles at top opera houses throughout the United States.
The Pagliacci Project is made possible in part by the generous support of Sandra and Walter Wilkie, and The Arts Education League of Austin Lyric Opera. For more information, visit www.AustinLyricOpera.org.
