Opera and Musical Theatre
The Opera/Music Theatre Program provides an encouraging atmosphere for all who have an interest in performing music theatre on the stage. Music and Theatre majors participate in the program. There are full productions of standard and newer shows each year and a training workshop each semester. Applied Music majors take classes in the core curriculum and then address this Concentration with ensembles and electives that relate to opera, music theatre and language/diction. Private vocal instruction is an important component of this program.
Quantum Opera Theatre was created by Dr. Lynne Morrow to produce SSU student music theatre, workshop new music theatre in the summer and bring composers and professional singers to campus to work with students.
