Opera at VSU provides students with the opportunity to train in all aspects of operatic performance techniques. Through the creative effort and mentorship of a talented faculty, VSU students are provided a nurturing environment in which to develop as singing actors. In addition to musical coaching and diction, students receive comprehensive role preparation in the areas of movement, stage deportment, character development and analysis and other necessary theatrical skills.

Students who wish to participate in VSU Opera productions must have permission of the director and should enroll in Opera Workshop. Although the course is designed to help students integrate their acting and singing skills, participation is not limited to voice majors. Students enrolled will audition at the beginning of the semester and will be given roles appropriate to their abilities.

If you are a lover of opera, please consider being a sponsor! The following tax-deductible sponsorship levels are available. Your name will appear in all opera programs. Please call 229.333.2150 for more information.
