Merola Opera Program's Summer Festival to Conclude With Merola Grand Finale

Merola Opera Program's Summer Festival will end on a high note with the Merola Grand Finale, a concert featuring the 31 young artists of the 2022 program performing opera's most thrilling arias and ensembles. As the largest class in company history, and the first group of Merolini to return to in-person performances in nearly two years due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the culmination of this season is monumental, setting the stage for the bright future that lies ahead. Directed by 2022 Merola Stage Director Matthew J. Schulz, this performance will showcase the dedication, passion, and extraordinary talent of opera's exciting new voices. The performance will be conducted by Patrick Furrer, a Metropolitan Opera staff member since 2011, who made his conducting debut at The Met in December 2021 with Magic Flute, followed in February 2022 by the company's first-ever production of the original five-act French version of Verdi's Don Carlos.
