This summer, Nightingale Opera Theatre will mount a production of Jake Heggie's If I Were You. This new opera was commissioned and debuted in summer 2019 by the Merola Program through San Fransisco Opera. Jake Heggie will be joining us during our second week for masterclasses and coachings. The program will also include performances of Heggie's art songs and portions from his other operas, as well as a rotation of masterclasses, lectures, and career classes in addition to private lessons, music coachings, acting coachings, and staging rehearsals. Selected participants will have the opportunity to work side by side with our composers' residency to bring additional new music to life. Our program will occur June 22-July 11th in Hudson, Ohio!
