Opera Program

 Postcard Arrives Soon
San Francisco is about to receive a very special delivery from Portland, Oregon. Postcard from Morocco by Pulitzer Prize and Grammy Award-winning composer Dominick Argento opens at Portland Opera this week before coming to the Conservatory's Caroline H. Hume Concert Hall for performances from April 10 through 13. In a groundbreaking collaboration, the Conservatory Opera Program and Portland Opera are sharing both the production and the talents of acclaimed stage director Kevin Newbury. Opera Program Music Director Curt Pajer conducts and Newbury directs a cast made up entirely of Conservatory students portraying seven stranded travelers who unpack their baggage (so to speak) to music that covers ground from Wagner to cabaret.
