The 2019 Studio Artists will present Sumeida’s Song by Mohammed Fairouz.

The opera is based on Tawfiq al-Hakims play Song of Death, a classic in Arab theater. Sumeida's Song follows the return of Alwan, a young man from Cairo, to his village in Upper Egypt. He defies his family's expectations that he will fulfill an age-old blood feud. Instead, he reveals that the true purpose of his return is to end the violence, and bring light and enlightenment to his village.

The Musical Director and Accompanist is Dr. Gloria Kim and the Program Director is Richard Gammon.

Opera Maine's prestigious Studio Artist program (formerly known as Young Artist Program) was inaugurated in 1996 and has run continuously except for a brief hiatus during the great recession. It has evolved from being an educational activity for local music students, giving them an opportunity to sing in concert settings, to offering full fledged programs for young professionals who produce and perform complete operas at various locations around the state. Many of our alumni have gone on to have successful careers in major theaters around the country. Participants also have roles in Opera Maine's mainstage production, working with Opera Maine's Artistic Director Dona D. Vaughn, and our Principal Conductor Stephen Lord.
