Once again, the individuals that make up The Santa Fe Opera Spring Opera Tour are getting ready to take to the highways and byways of New Mexico and Texas.
The group consisting of Music Director Kirt Pavitt, Soprano Julia Ebner, Tenor Joshua Guerrero and Stage Manager Joel Atella, will load the Santa Fe Opera van with sets and costumes and take off for their month-long adventure and a brand new opera to share.
Ebner was an apprentice singer in the 2011 season and Guerrero will be a first year apprentice this summer.
“Avastar,” is an original work written by Pavitt and Stage Director Kathleen Clawson especially for the tour to engage students in the world of opera using contemporary themes.
The 35-minute piece is about a virtual music competition, which the two young singers have entered. “Avastar” uses music from opera, Broadway and the present-day musical scene. School concerts are scheduled in Taos, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Portales, Lubbock and El Paso, Texas.
In addition, a special concert has been planned and families are encouraged to attend together. Selections include songs from opera, Broadway and popular culture.
Three early evening events will be given in Albuquerque, Socorro, Rio Rancho, Española, Portales, Lubbock and Alamogordo. The concerts are free.
