In 2008, the University of Cincinnati’s
College-Conservatory of Music and Cincinnati Opera launched Opera
Fusion, an initiative to share resources and nurture emerging talent in
artistic and technical areas.
This weekend the
Cincinnati Pops pays tribute to the music of Stephen Foster and other
songs rooted in the American experience with “American Originals,”
performed by veteran and emerging Roots musicians.
His latest project, Great Scott, is being intensively workshopped as part of Opera Fusion: New Works, a collaboration between Cincinnati Opera and the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music.
