Beatrice and Benedict
In Spring 2020 I was hired to choreograph for FSU Opera’s production of Beatrice and Benedict by Hector Belioz. The cast and I created some community-generated folk dance, but unfortunately the final performances were cancelled due to COVID-19.
Video coming soon!
In Fall 2019 I had the opportunity to direct two opera scenes for the College of Music Scene Showcase. I directed a selected from Donazetti’s L’elisir d’amore for undergraduate vocal performance majors and a selection from Strauss’ Arabella for graduate vocal performers.
Videos coming soon!
In Fall 2017 I was approached by the FSU Opera department to aid in the production of the Leonard Bernstein opera Candide. Directed by Matthew Lata and opening November 2017, I got a wonderful crash course in choreographing on 2 casts, 35 total singers on FSU’s Ruby Diamond Concert Hall.
