Opera in Williamsburg, the innovative opera company that performs two fully-staged operas in Williamsburg each year, will open its doors so CWA members can observe a working rehearsal. The singers will already have rehearsed the music and some of the staging before arriving in Williamsburg. This will be a work session with piano accompaniment, with no costumes and minimal props, with possible repetitions and with backstage staff moving around. This semester the performance will be Verdi's Traviata, the most popular opera in the repertoire. Doors to the theater open at 1:15 p.m. Rehearsal begins at 1:30 p.m.
