Nevada Chamber Opera

Albert Rudolph Lee, Artistic Director

Fall and spring performances

Nevada Chamber Opera at the University of Nevada, Reno presents an annual season of one fully staged opera production as well as evenings of opera scenes and one-act operas. Nevada Chamber Opera's mission is to cast students in roles and the program features every level of singer from master of music students to undergraduate non-music majors in principal and supporting roles. Works originally written in a foreign language are usually performed in English. In addition, repertory is chosen so that each student during a four-year period will be exposed to works from as many different eras and representing as many different styles as possible. Nevada Chamber Opera offers courses dedicated to the study of opera arias and scenes, operatic singing, stage movement, interpreting the text and a presentation of a program of scenes and one-act operas. Nevada Chamber Opera regularly presents guest artists in concerts and master classes.

Ensemble registration

For voice students, acceptance and participation in the Nevada Chamber Opera can be used to fulfill undergraduate major and minor degree requirements and graduate music degree requirements for major ensemble participation. The details for ensemble requirements are as follows:

  • Voice students: Applied voice majors may take up to four credits in MUS 470 - Opera Theater - to satisfy their major ensemble requirement. The four credits in MUS 470 must be after their 300 upper-division voice audition.
  • Graduate students: To fulfill degree requirements, graduate students in the department of music are required to participate in some form of conducted or coached ensemble for a minimum of two credits. The Nevada Chamber Opera can be used to fulfill this requirement.
