Opera Theater

street scene


The WKU Opera Theater Fall semester group meets twice weekly and performs a one act opera, a single act from an opera or opera excerpts. Emphasis is placed on the development and refinement of the singer/actor. In the Spring the Opera Theater combines with the Department of Theater and Dance to mount a full scale opera or musical. Recent productions include Pippin (Hirson/Swartz); Sweeney Todd (Sondheim); The Gondoliers (Gilbert and Sullivan); and Menotti's Amahl and the Night Visitors.


Opera Theater is open to all WKU students. For more information about WKU Opera Theater, contact Dr. Wayne Pope.
