Imagine this. You arrive at your new job and have barely figured out who is who and what is where. And one of the first things you do is stand up in front of your new colleagues and bosses to deliver 5 minutes of what you believe to be your best work. Welcome to Death by Aria.
A parade of singers and arias can sometimes feel like a death march, but here at Wolf Trap we use the term with affection and with tongue firmly in cheek. Yesterday, the 2016 Studio Artists acquitted themselves beautifully and reminded us how fortunate we will be to spend the summer with them.
