Frost Opera Theater Mission

Frost Opera Theater recognizes that today’s opera world is vibrant, eclectic, and ever changing. Training, experience, and respect for tradition and innovation are central to the curriculum of opera studies at the Frost School of Music. Frost Opera Theater performance activities reflect the broad range of programming in the 21st century, from Baroque opera to the most progressive works of our time. 

The mission of the Frost Opera Theater is three-fold:

  • To stimulate, engage, and educate students to the possibilities before them as aspiring performers in the world of opera.
  • To provide students with the diversity of training and staged performance experience necessary to pursue advanced study and/or professional engagement.
  • To maintain creative/educational alliances within the Frost School of Music, the University of Miami community, as well as South Florida and beyond.

To this aim, Frost Opera Theater maintains these current objectives and goals:

  • To provide a comprehensive and versatile skills training curriculum.
  • To offer multiple academic year performance programs consisting of arias, scenes, chamber, one-act and multi-act operas.
  • To engage professional guest artists and establish collaborative ventures for the benefit of students.
