Spotlight on Opera

[2015] Spotlight on Opera is in its 9th season as Texas' premiere summer opera training program. We are dedicated to providing training and performance opportunities to career track and avocational singers aged 15 and up.

Founded in 2007 by Program Director Cindy Sadler, Spotlight began as a one week summer program at St. Edward's University. The program expanded quickly and by 2010 went fulltime, acting as a community opera troupe in the fall and spring and a training program for aspiring singers in the summer, a model we continue today. 

Spotlight on Opera is open to classical singers aged 15 and up, whether they are well on their way to a place on the professional stage or just want to dip their toes in wonderful world of opera. Our caring staff of professional opera singers, pianists, and educators works with each singer to provide guidance and growth as an artist. We strive to give every singer a chance to experience the spotlight for themselves, and to bring our audience members creative, fun, intimate, and high quality performances.
