"Under the direction of Alan Johnson, The Frost's School opera department has produced a series of innovative production in recent seasons.  The pairing of Igor Stravinsky's Mavra and Osvaldo Golijov's Ainadamar exceeds all previous offerings."

     Frost Opera Theater reaches new heights with Golijov-Stravinsky double- bill.
