University Opera Theatre

The Opera Theatre presents one fully-staged operatic production each semester. For more than 30 years under the direction of Professor Vern Sutton, this ensemble has won notable prizes and has produced singers who now perform on major stages across the US and Europe. The Opera Theatre provides students with the opportunity to be involved in all aspects of fully staged opera productions. David Walsh, associate professor of opera, is the director of University Opera Theatre. With a professional career spanning more than twenty-five years and two continents, Walsh has successfully combined the artistic flair expected of a director and teacher with the organizational and management abilities required of an administrator.
