Come enjoy, “30 Days of Opera,” right here in Gallup as The Land of Enchantment Opera open season continues through August 2.

Through the end of July, opera singers belt it out in downtown Gallup, at the McKinley Courthouse Plaza, prior to the Summer Nightly Indian Dances, starting at 6:30 pm.

The LEO features young artists performing nightly such as: Blake Boily-tenor, from Enid, OK; Samantha Resser-mezzo-soprano, from St. Charles, IL; and Kelly DeLameter-baritone, from Myersville, MD, just to name a few.

These young performing artists showcase their talent through the “Young Artists Program.”

This program is offered, as well as designed by the LEO institute to bridge the gap between school and the professional world, transforming singers into artists. Singers at the program receive daily coaching and voice lessons from recognized masters in the opera world as well as daily master classes to hone every aspect of their performance.

In addition to the operas, singers will have performing opportunities at various events over the course of the five week program.
