Other Performance Opportunities

Classes are taught with performance in mind. Musical coaching, staging and performance are crucial for experiencing and learning a variety of styles (musical, acting, movement, stage direction and musical direction) and for integrating singing with the acting and movement skills taught in our performance based classes.

Satellite Projects

From time to time our musical and directing staff find unusual opera, operetta, and/or musical theater projects to enrich the opera experience of talented people who are not cast in other venues. In the past we have done famous one acts (like Gianni Schicchi and Suor Angelica) and have work-shopped new works by students and faculty. TBA dates

Outreach Performances
Opportunities arise for members of the Opera Programs and Opera Institute to perform in venues that encourage new audiences or take opera to people who might otherwise not have the opportunity to hear it. Some of these performances are paid, some are not. TBA dates

Scenes Programs 
 December Scenes Semester I: December 7, 2019

Ensemble participation
Ensemble participation is viewed as an important opportunity and is an integral part of our practical performance training.
