Opera Workshop


Opera Workshop prepares voice students for curricular and extra-curricular performance situations (juries, recitals, main stage productions, Opera Galas and competitions).

During the Fall semester, class time is spent exploring and presenting individual repertoire for performance as well preparing and rehearsing music for Fall Gala and Spring main stage productions. During the Spring semester, students devote their energies, by way of involvement either onstage or behind the scenes, solely to main stage production.
