There is something incredibly special about traveling to meet a cast of strangers and bringing a score to life on a stage together,” says Hilary Ginther of Bristol, Va. “It is a fulfilling feeling of teamwork, creativity and artistic honesty.” It’s also a challenge, which Ginther, who is performing the role of Jo March, and about 20 other young singers have accepted as part of the inaugural production of Opera Fayetteville.
Performers Audrey Grieme, left, Sarah Tucker Slayden, Cristopher Frisco, Chelsea Coyne and Ann Coffman sing during a rehearsal for Opera Fayetteville’s production of “Little Women.” The company’s inaugural season features performers from around the country and orchestra members from the Symphony of Northwest Arkansas, the Arkansas Philharmonic and the Fort Smith Symphony.
