Maryland Opera Studio students performing

NOI Philharmonic & Maryland Opera Studio: Owen Wingrave

College of Arts and Humanities | School of Music | The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center Sunday, June 6, 2021 7:00 pm-9:00 pm

Juxtaposing his pacifist beliefs against his family’s military traditions, a young man finds himself leaving his training to confront his family in Benjamin Britten’s hauntingly intense opera Owen Wingrave. As Wingrave seeks to prove his courage, he unknowingly veers toward a collision against fate, leading to unexpected consequences.

Under the direction of Craig Kier, the Maryland Opera Studio is dedicated to the future of opera. Preparing the next generation of great singers and offering performances ranging from classic repertoire to provocative new works, it is building contemporary audiences for opera and advancing the art that sustains them.

This performance is part of the National Orchestral Institute + Festival (NOI+F). A program of the University of Maryland’s Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, NOI+F trains aspiring orchestral musicians, composers, conductors and arts administrators from across the country in a month of dynamic music-making and professional exploration at The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Musicians are chosen through a rigorous, cross-country audition process. Every year, these young artists present passionate and awe-inspiring performances of adventuresome repertoire at The Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center.
