Join us Wednesday, May 1 at 7:30pm in the Tryon Festival Theatre for our semester presentations of Lyric Studio and Lyric Scenes. Taught by Sarah Wigley and Michael Tilley, Lyric Studio presents “Tin Pan Alley and Bel Canto Opera” featuring scenes from the beloved musicals of the 1920’s and 30s and bel canto opera favorites. Directly following will be Lyric Scenes, music directed by Dr. Julie Gunn. Lyric Scenes will present an evening of opera scenes ranging from Poulenc’s Dialogues of the Carmelites to Rossini’s Barber of Seville and will culminate in a performance of Elizabeth Gartman and Susan Bywater’s new opera, The New Motive Power.
