"OperaWorks, like so many performance organizations, was hit hard after COVID. But we are back with our first big show since 2020. It features the most talented students in the vocal program at MSU," said Dr. Roma Prindle, professor of music and founder/director of MSU OperaWorks. "OperaWorks has always had a strong community following since it was founded 30 years ago. We will be thrilled to unite with the Morehead community once again."  

OperaWorks began 30 years ago to provide valuable stage experience for voice majors and other classical singers in MSU's Department of Music, Theatre and Dance. The ensemble has performed extensively throughout the region and in England, Ireland, and Wales. Dr. Cully Bell is the show's collaborative pianist.
