About Spotlight on Opera
Spotlight on Opera is a professional development program dedicated to providing high quality training and performance opportunities for career track and avocational singers aged 18 and up.
Spotlight on Opera is an artistic entrepreneur and professional development program dedicated to providing high quality training and performance opportunities for career track and avocational singers aged 18 and up. We believe that opera is for everybody - singers well on their way to a place on the professional stage, singers who just want to dip their toes in wonderful world of opera, die-hard opera fans and folks who don't yet know how much they are going to love opera.
Now in our 10th Anniversary Season, we are hosted by Texas State University in San Marcos. Our four week summer program features classes in the business of singing, finances, acting, and more; full opera productions, scenes, and concerts; master classes with the industry's movers and shakers; a student directing program; audition videos and headshots for all participants; and more.
We also maintain a presence in Austin and throughout Central Texas with touring children's opera and concerts.
Spotlight on Opera is open to classical and musical theatre singers of all ages and aspirations, whether they are well on their way to a place on the professional stage or just want to sing for fun and personal enrichment. Our caring staff of professional opera singers, pianists, and educators works with each singer to provide guidance and growth as an artist. We strive to give every singer a chance to experience the spotlight for themselves, and to bring our audience members creative, fun, intimate, and high quality performances.
