Here you will find up-to-date information on the 2012 - 2013 Opera Season.
Auditions for the productions occur in the fall, and casting is decided by for the entire season. Students begin rehearsals immediately and the experience culminates in a fully staged, costumed, conducted, and directed season of great opera! Students coach musically with Dr. Marc Schapman during the rehearsal process and work independently with their voice teacher, including Dr. Marc Schapman, Dr. Emily Truckenbrod, and Robert Ayllon. Please refer to the links on the left for more specific production information.
Thank you for your interest in SIUE Opera Theater. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or comments. See you at the opera!
