Opera Studies

Discover your voice

Indiana University's Opera and Ballet Theater is world renowned for its outstanding facilities, full mainstage productions, successful alumni (many on the roster of the Metropolitan Opera), and extraordinary faculty.

Our full productions are designed, built, rehearsed, and presented under the roof of the Musical Arts Center, and four orchestras accompany the works. Three faculty coaches and four graduate coaches help to prepare our singers and play for all rehearsals. Your training takes place with the guidance our celebrated voice faculty, and performing opportunities include the undergraduate and graduate opera workshops, and Studio and Chamber Opera.

Study with faculty you admire

Go to every performance you can, and just take it all in. Let the music seep into your bones and your being, and you will feel so much more enhanced. Jacobs offers tremendous opportunities for you to absorb so much music, so take advantage of it.
