The opera curriculum is an important element of singer training at Lawrence and is uniquely designed with the specific needs of the undergraduate singer in mind. The curriculum is divided into technique-building classes and performance experiences using the techniques garnered in those classes. The classes and productions establish an environment for the student to incrementally build and hone the craft of a skilled singing actor.
The opera program is also award winning! Recently, Lawrence students have received:
- First prize at the National Opera Association-Collegiate Opera Scenes competition, Division 1 (2016)
- Second prize at the National Opera Association-Best Opera Production (2015).
