Program Overview

Graduate and undergraduate students in all degree programs, including Music Education, Music Therapy, and General Music, as well as those pursuing non-music degrees, are eligible to participate in the opera program and receive the training and performance experience it offers. Graduate students and advanced undergraduates may also obtain experience in stage direction or opera workshop curriculum and administration through the teaching of classes and workshops in areas of their specialty or interest including, but not limited to, acting, audition techniques, movement and dance, and role preparation.  A DMA secondary concentration in opera stage direction and workshop pedagogy is now available.

Our training program includes opera as well as musical theater styles ranging from the Baroque to the 21st century. We perform Verdi and Sondheim, Monteverdi and Cole Porter, Mozart and Bernstein, side by side because we believe versatility leads to marketability. We study the art of the singer-actor, applying skills to the rehearsal process to bring music and theater to life on the stage.  We offer students the tools needed to have a career in the business today and the chance to find who they are as performers. Join us in the pursuit of excellence in our craft, and start your career at The University of Alabama!
