The Binghamton University Music Department’s Opera Ensemble presents composer John Davies’ 40 minute opera for children, ‘Billy Goats Gruff’. The composer and the Opera Ensemble’s Music Director, Willie Anthony Waters, talk about the opera and their casts of singers. Mr. Davies (pictured) explains how he uses preexisting music from operas where similar situations are encountered. Mr. Waters also gives us a heads-up that he will be on the Metropolitan Opera live Saturday broadcast’s Opera Quiz twice this coming season.
