The Opera Theater program presents at least one main stage opera, operetta, or other lyric theater piece each academic year. The core of the program is the opera theater class in which student singers receive specialized training for the lyric theater, including stage movement, acting, role study techniques, and vocal coaching.
This training is a vital part of the voice program for both graduate and undergraduate students, and it culminates in the performance of complete lyric theater productions, as well programs of scenes excerpts. The voice and opera theater faculty are uniquely qualified, through national and international experience, to train talented singers in the art and craft of opera performance.
