Wolf Trap Company 1975: Overview

Summer 1975 comprised three productions at the Filene Center  (Roberto Devereux, Kismet and The Crucible), and one at the satellite venue at Madeira School (Albert Herring).  The Company’s young artists also had the privilege of performing excerpts from Copland’s The Tender Land with the National Symphony under Antal Dorati.

Throughout the mid-70’s, the Company young artist roster telescoped, as the focus narrowed to classically-trained singers from its initially broad singer/actor/dancer demographic in 1971. This year’s roster numbered 25 singers (see below), and the Wolf Trap training experience was becoming increasingly detailed and targeted.  1975 season staff included an amazing young pianist named Steven Blier.
