The Ball State Opera Theatre (BSOT) presents at least two full productions every year in addition to scenes programs and other performances. As a comprehensive experience, BSOT offers undergraduate, graduate, and artist diploma students the opportunity to learn about and perform opera starting from whatever level of experience at which they enter the university. BSOT is distinctive because the program has the resources to perform fully staged major works with orchestra and have multiple yearly productions without being so large that only upper level graduate students get a chance to perform. Our productions offer students the opportunity to perform with orchestra, in chamber works, on tour, in opera workshop, and much more.
A few recent productions include:
Werther by Massenet
L’elisir d’amore by Donizetti
Cosi fan tutte by Mozart
Giulio Cesare in Egitto by Handel
Madama Butterfly by Puccini
Carmen by Georges Bizet
La bohème by Giacomo Puccini
Dido and Aeneas by Henry Purcell
Orfeo ed Euridice by Christoph Willibald Gluck
Die Fledermaus by Johann Strauss, Jr.
Multiple BSOT alumni have gone on to prestigious careers in opera, including artists that have performed onstage at the Metropolitan Opera and at recognized houses around the world.
