Opera production earns first prize in national competition

Paula Homer, director of operaThe College of Music opera program earned first place in the National Opera Association’s Opera Production Competition in Division V – the highest division among conservatory and university programs – for its production of Marc Blitzstein’s Regina.

The award “acknowledges the top quality training” that the college provides, said Paula Homer, right, director of UNT Opera. Stephen Dubberly is music director and conductor.  

UNT Opera performed Regina, based on playwright Lillian Hellman’s The Little Foxes, in 2011. The production incorporated opera, musical theatre, jazz, Dixieland and blues.

Entries were judged in a videotaped performance based on production budget, size of program and level of vocal training of the cast members.

Last year, UNT Opera earned third place from the National Opera Association's Opera Production Competition for its performance of Smetana's Prodaná nevesta (The Bartered Bride), which was the first opera to be presented in Czech at UNT. UNT also won awards from the National Opera Association in previous years for Argento's Postcard from Morocco and Britten's Albert Herring.
