The Curtis Opera Theatre, under the artistic direction of Mikael Eliasen, works with established professional directors and designers to create fresh interpretations of standard repertoire and contemporary works. All of Curtis’s 25 voice and opera students are cast repeatedly each season, receiving a rare level of performance experience. As a result Curtis graduates have sung with opera companies all over the world, including La Scala, Covent Garden, the Vienna Staatsoper, Houston Grand Opera, the San Francisco Opera, and the Metropolitan Opera.
- Stages to Success: The Curtis Opera Theatre gives students professional-level experiences and polish, plus a degree of versatility unusual for young singers
- From the Heart: For a quarter of a century, Mikael Eliasen has guided Curtis singers on stage and in the studio
