Presented by the Northwestern University Chamber Opera Initiative

Northwestern's Chamber Opera Initiative is a new student organization dedicated to performing lesser-known works through student-run productions. We aim to inspire a sense of entrepreneurial innovation in young opera singers and we have chosen the Baroque opera seria masterpiece Ariodante as our first project.
