Steven Osgood

AOP is excited to announce that Jules Massenet’s one act opera La Navarraise received a rave review from Harry Rolnick of ConcertoNet.  In particular, AOP is proud of the recognition our former Artistic Director, Steven Osgood, received.  Rolnick paid special attention to the New York City Opera Orchestra under Osgood’s baton.  Michael Zegarski, with whom AOP has collaborated on Séance on a Wet Afternoon, the Composers & the Voice song workshop, and is a board member of AOP, served in the ensemble and was singled out by Rolnick for his performance in the “delicious song ‘For Wine! For Cider.’”  Andrew Drost, who sang the role or Ramon, is another AOP alumnus, having sung in the Voice of Brooklyn concert.  Baritone, Jeffrey Tucker, who collaborated with AOP on Before Night Falls, sang the role of Bustamente.
