Fans know him as the mischievous Q, but John de Lancie will take on a different role when he presents an opera master class at Texas State this week.
De Lancie, who can list opera director as well as actor on his resume, will be presenting the master class this week. The class will focus on acting as it relates to roles in opera.
“It is an opera-intensive class,” said Sam Mungo, director of opera studies at Texas State. “He came to me with the idea of offering a class on acting as it relates to opera, and I invited him to come to Texas State. This is the inaugural presentation of his class.”
Participating students in the class will present a free informal workshop on Sunday, September 19, at 6 PM in room 216 of the Music Building, open to the public.
De Lancie comes from a musical family, with a father who was a world famous oboist for the Philadelphia Orchestra. De Lancie made his directorial debut in 2006.
