    The nationally recognized University of Mississippi Opera Theatre provides the opportunity for skill development in music, drama, movement, and design specifically related to opera performance. Fully staged productions include scenes and chamber opera each Fall and a full-length opera with orchestra each Spring.  The Opera Theatre’s production of The Magic Flute was the first opera to be performed in the Gertrude C. Ford Performing Arts Center in 2003.

    The Opera Theatre Ensemble tours within the state and region, has appeared at national conventions of the National Opera Association, and regional opera festivals.  Participation in the Opera Theatre Ensemble is open to any student enrolled at the University of Mississippi regardless of his or her academic major. Contact the Director of Opera Theatre, Julia Aubrey, for information regarding opera scholarships and graduate assistantships.
