Curtis Opera Theatre

The Curtis Opera Theatre is the performing entity of the Curtis Vocal Studies Department. Headed by Director of Vocal Studies Eric Owens, the Curtis Opera Theatre presents at least four fully staged performances and concert productions each season, in venues such as the Prince Music Theater, Perelman Theater at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, and the Curtis Opera Studio. All of the department's twenty-five voice and opera students receive onstage experience throughout their studies at Curtis, as they are often cast in multiple roles each school year. Graduates of Curtis’s program can be heard in the finest opera houses around the world including the Vienna State Opera, Covent Garden, and the Metropolitan Opera.
