Operatic performing opportunities have been offered at Nebraska Wesleyan University for over 25 years. Fully staged and costumed operas, with orchestra, are performed every spring. Two evenings of opera scenes are performed every fall. When the students are not rehearsing full productions or scenes, additional topics are covered, including acting, audition skills, movement, dance, character development, performance preparation, memorization, score study, choreography, and directing. Students are also actively involved in the technical production of Opera Scenes and productions (costuming, make-up, lighting, scenic design, props, choreography, musical direction, and stage managing). All performing opportunities at Nebraska Wesleyan, including operas and opera scenes, are available to any student, regardless of major.
