Tim Ocel, a national-profile director of opera and musicals, presented a master class on Tuesday, Sept. 30, for Webster University Opera Studio students. Ocel is also an adjunct faculty member currently teaching a song study class in the Conservatory of Theatre Arts.

In the master class, he worked with students on dramatic intention, textual understanding and clarity and character illumination in this session arranged by Alice Nelson, director of the Webster University Opera Studio.

Results of Ocel’s coaching and Nelson’s work will be apparent at the annual Opera Scenes performances on Jan. 23-25, 2015.
