Opera Workshop

Opera Workshop

Under the tutelage of Dr. Robert Breault, Director of Opera, and Jeffrey Price, voice coach and collaborative pianist for the opera ensembles, undergraduate and graduate students receive six hours of operatic training weekly in the Vocal Arts Center, a dedicated opera building. During fall semester, students stage a scenes program of diverse repertoire from Handel to Sondheim and from Monteverdi to Poulenc.


Known for its sense of community, professionalism and collaborative work environment, students learn stagecraft and gain confidence as singing actors in Opera Workshop. Guest artists and recent master class clinicians include conductors Robert Tweten and Michael Barrett; composer Mark Adamo; stage directors Michael Scarola and Stephanie Sundine; and mezzo-soprano Joyce Castle, soprano Celena Shafer and tenor Stanford Olsen.
