Program Notes: 

Revenge, jealousy, love, betrayal and forgiveness — it’s the very stuff of opera. Mozart’s brilliance weaves them into a stunning musical and dramatic event.

Buffeted by the gods, survivors of the Trojan War move from the agony of loving your enemy to the joy of finding your love.

Idomeneo premiered in Munich on January 29, 1781, conducted by the 25-year-old composer himself.

There’s a good reason that the Maryland Opera Studio has won a devoted following among our patrons. See what these talented second-year MM Voice students have in store for you as they perform great operatic works.
