Experiments in Opera

Are you a singer, dancer, actor, composer, director, poet, playwright, novelist, or perhaps circus artist or stand-up comedian? Join us in an exploration of the ultimate multi-hyphenate-opera. Students will have a front row seat to an early-phase project, and create their own work as we explore the nature of musical storytelling and multi-disciplinary collaboration. We will be shaping stories into librettos, managing the scale and development process for a piece, assessing the impact of different musical approaches, and interpretive opportunities for directors and designers. A final sharing will showcase the nature of iterative collaboration.

Other Information

You do not need to have ever listened to or attended an opera to be in this class. We recognize that we all come from different backgrounds, cultures and levels of exposure and experience; we will be exploring and celebrating a wide range of stories and histories.
