Student Opportunities
​In addition to private study and general music education, the opera program offers two distinct performing opportunities each year, the UD Opera Theatre and the Opera Workshop.

In 2005 the Department of Music presented its first full opera production with orchestra, Mozart’s The Magic Flute. In the years since, the department has presented an array of classic and contemporary opera performances from the Kurt Weill/Langston Hughes/Elmer Rice crossover masterpiece, Street Scene, to Mozart’s Così fan tutte. The opera program continues to develop, giving students performing opportunities in both traditional and experimental venues.

The art of solo vocal performance is the focus of Opera Workshop, where singers are challenged to create opera roles in a lightly staged production open to majors and non-majors. Members of the Workshop receive individual coaching in both vocal and dramatic techniques. Each year, the Workshop produces a program of operas for performances on and off campus.
