Opera at Western

Western Illinois University's Opera Program is open to all students campus wide, but is particularly designed to give voice majors the opportunity to sing and refine their acting skills on the operatic stage. 

Opera Workshop is a class for both novice and experienced students. Singers practice the fundamentals of stage movement and operatic styles, while perfecting their own skills and talents. The class culminates in a scenes performance for the School of Music late in the fall semester.

Spring Opera takes place each May, when a fully staged production is performed with orchestra in Hainline Theatre. Performances are presented by WIU graduate and undergraduate students. Tickets are available to WIU students and the general public.
