Our lyric theatre program showcases full productions each year, featuring undergraduates in the lead roles, chorus and orchestra. Our students prepare for a career in opera by receiving professional coaching and stage direction. Recent productions include Lerner and Loewe's Brigadoon and My Fair Lady, Mozart's Don Giovanni and Marriage of Figaro, and Gilbert and Sullivan's The Pirates of Penzance and The Mikado. The yearly productions are open to majors and non-majors, but audition is required. For more information, contact Grant Knox.
