Opera is alive and well at Shorter University! Students have the opportunity to perform in fully staged productions in both the fall and spring semesters.
Shorter Opera Theatre performs a mixture of opera scenes, chamber operas, one-act works, operettas, and full-length operas. When appropriate, the operas are performed in their original language, and feature the use of Supertitles. Selection of the operas is made to showcase student singers and to expose them to the breadth of operatic literature from early music to contemporary, and from verismo opera to operetta.
In addition to leading roles at the undergraduate level and first-class vocal training from the Shorter voice faculty, the opera program includes a class Opera Preparation course.
