Opera @ Augustana

Opera @ Augustana provides opportunities for singers to explore some of the lighter operatic repertoire. Students who enjoy the combination of singing and acting are encouraged to audition early in the fall term. Students have the opportunity to take an active role behind the scenes as well as performing, by helping with set, costumes, lights, publicity and marketing and serving as assistants to the director.


Auditions are held throughout the year for specific productions. Students are asked to perform an aria or song of their choice, usually from memory. An accompanist is provided. Sometimes simple choreography and/or reading of lines is included in the auditions, if the opera calls for it.  For more information, contact Dr. John Pfautz.

Opera @ Augustana  performs two or three times a year.
