UW–Madison's production of ‘Into the Woods’ honored by National Opera Association

December 11, 2019

The National Opera Association (NOA) has named the production of “Into the Woods” — which was co-produced by UW–Madison’s University Theatre and University Opera — as first place winner in the Opera Production Competition in Division IV for the 2018-19 season.

Divisions are based on graduate/undergraduate participation, cast, and budgetary considerations in order to compare productions fairly.

The NOA Production Competition entries are judged in the following categories: musicianship (accuracy and musical integrity); quality of singing (as appropriate to the style); diction (clarity and accuracy); dramatic credibility and characterization; production concept, staging, and execution; and quality of the production (relative to the budget).

Congratulations to Director David Ronis, Conductor Chad Hutchinson, the cast, designers, production team, orchestra, and the Department of Theatre and Drama and the Mead Witter School of Music on an outstanding achievement.
