Student Opera Theatre
Cal Poly Student Opera Theatre, presented at the discretion of the vocal faculty, provides fully staged productions with directors, costumers, pianists, and band or orchestra. Performances and programs are designed to serve as many student soloists as possible, and promote training in opera/theatre performance technique.
Additional solo performances for voice students are provided through master classes with renowned and distinguished guest artists, annual concerts for the local "Opera Lovers" group and solo competitions. In addition, OperaSLO provides auditions for comprimario or chorus members in its productions, plus participation in its OperaSLO To Go, an educational outreach program.
Past productions have included Puccini's "Suor Angelica;" scenes from Strauss' "Der Rosenkavalier" and "Die Fledermaus;" Rodgers and Hammerstein's "Oklahom;" Mozart's "Impresario" and "The Magic Flute (in collaboration with Opera San Luis Obispo); " Haydn's "Apothecary;" "Purcell's "Dido and Aeneas;" "The Kurt Weill Show;" and additional classic scenes from opera and Broadway. Each involved performance opportunities for 20-40 students.
