(WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass.) – The Williams Opera Workshop, under the direction of Erin Nafziger and Keith Kibler, will perform works by Mozart, Weill, and Humperdinck in Chapin Hall on the Williams College campus on Tuesday, January 26, at 7 pm. The event is free and open to the public.
From Mozart’s “The Marriage of Figaro,” the singers, recruited from the ranks of talented Williams music students as well as faculty, perform the finale to Act II of this beloved opera accompanied by a student-led orchestra.
Humperdinck’s “Hansel and Gretel” receives a semi-staged performance of Act III, scene III.
The ensemble also performs “Ice Cream Sextet,” from Kurt Weill’s opera “Street Scene.”
Co-director of the workshop Keith Kibler will also be featured in various solo settings.

This offers singers the opportunity to further develop skills in stage acting, character development, and foreign language while working as part of an ensemble. The workshop culminates in this final concert performance co-directed by Erin Nafziger and Keith Kibler.
