Missouri State’s Opera Theater provides extensive performance opportunities as well as collaborative opportunities with Missouri State’s Department of Theatre and Dance and the Springfield Regional Opera. Each student receives individual training as an acting singer to build confidence in audition situations and prepare for a career onstage, behind the scenes, or in an educational environment.
"Opera Workshop has shown me a new perspective in my voice. It has helped me add expression to my performances and I love it! All voice students should take Opera Workshop at least once before they graduate.
"This program is the reason why I chose MSU. I wanted to have the experience on the stage, to learn more about what I wish to be my career path. This class is really teaching me more about myself and what I need to work on as a performer. I see that much of the work that is done does not go unnoticed and hard work can really take this class to a whole other level. I feel that this is one of those classes where you get what you give, and I love it. It is my favorite class by far."
