UTRGV Opera Theater



UTRGV Opera Theater presents multiple performances throughout the year, including programs of mainstage productions, opera scenes, and community outreach performances. The Opera Workshop ensemble is open to all university majors by audition, and offers UTRGV students the opportunity to explore and perform works drawn from the vast operatic and musical theatre repertoire as they learn first-hand about opera production, costuming, set design, stagecraft, and direction. Recent seasons have included mainstage productions of Die Fledermaus (Strauss), Orpheus in the Underworld (Offenbach), Street Scene (Kurt Weill), Die Zauberflöte (Mozart), and Così fan tutte (Mozart). To audition for the Opera Workshop ensemble in Brownsville or Edinburg, please contact the appropriate campus director (see contact information below).
