Opera Theatre


Established in 1997, GVSU Opera Theatre was founded to provide GVSU students who sing and act an opportunity to work with stage and music directors from the world of professional opera and theatre. Since 2014, the season has been expanded to include 2 main stage productions per academic year featuring classically based operatic works as well as traditional and new music theatre. 

Students who are active in Opera Theatre throughout their undergraduate education have the opportunity to go to NYC to showcase for professional talent agents and casting directors as an opportunity to transition into the professional performance world after graduation.  For more information about this opportunity, contact Dale Schriemer.
