Purchase Opera Earns Top Award for 2020–2021

The National Opera Association awards the production of Dialogues of the Carmelites divisional first prize.

The National Opera Association has announced the winners of their 2020–2021 Opera Production Competition and the Purchase College Conservatory of Music’s production of Dialogues of the Carmelites was determined the winner of Division IV.

Due to the vast range of resources available to producing organizations, entrants are first divided into undergraduate and graduate levels (based on predominant age group or training level of the cast) and then each level divided into three divisions according to production size and budget. A total of 12 awards were given by the judges.

Congratulations to all involved, including significant contributions by the students in the Theatre Design/Technology program.
