2015 marks the beginning of a new relationship between the Brevard Music Center and New York’s Center for Contemporary Opera. Brevard will work with CCO to bring new works to Brevard’s stages, both as part of the Opera in a Box series, as well as our mainstage productions. BMC and CCO artistic leadership will work together to choose promising operas to workshop and stage. Future opportunities for BMC students and alumni to perform in New York and abroad may materialize throughout the life cycle of each particular project. This year’s black box production of Falling Angel by J. Mark Scearce marks the inaugural collaboration of this partnership.
