Opera @ Morgan

Opera at Morgan (formerly Morgan State University Opera) has been offering performance opportunities for students interested in broadening their operatic and music theatre knowledge and experience since 2004. MSUOW has presented fully-staged productions and concerts with piano and orchestra. We provide students with an opportunity to learn roles, sing chorus, assist with lighting design, stage and house management. This is a student-centered class.  Our past productions include Porgy and BessAmahl and the Night Visitors, Dido and Aeneas, Gianni Schicchi, Treemonisha, Highway One USA, Gallantry, The Medium,and collabortations with regional orchestras and opera companies. As outreach, Opera at Morgan presents a matinee performance open to public school students and senior citizens from the surrounding Baltimore communities.  In addition to performances at Murphy Fine Arts Center, Opera Workshop students are provided with opportunities to perform with local and regional orchestra.

The Department of Fine and Performing Arts also presents a fully-staged Musical Theater production bi-annually in collaboration between its three units, Music, Theatre Arts and Visual Arts. Past productions include Raisin, Ragtime, Sarafina, and Crowns.
