Opera at USC offers a truly comprehensive program for both graduate and undergraduate
students, covering every facet of opera production, both on stage and behind the scenes.
Singers, directors, pianists, conductors, marketing and public relations students
and theatrical technicians get expert teaching and intensive hands-on experience in
their respective crafts.
Opera at USC presents two fully staged operas with orchestra each year and also presents
an evening of One-Act Operas, often with a graduate stage director. Roles are open
to undergraduates and graduates.
Master classes conducted by international opera singers, conductors, coaches and directors are held
Voice faculty and the choral department work closely together with Opera at USC on
many projects. Learn more about the choral ensembles and the vocal studies area.
