A major part of Arbor Opera Theater’s mission is to nurture and help train young and emerging artists. While many opera singers earn vocal performance degrees at fine institutions, they are left unprepared to work in major opera houses due to a lack of professional experience. AOT fills this void by providing professional performing experience to aspiring artists, offering opportunities to participate in high-quality theatrical performances where they can hone their skills and build their résumés. AOT artists have gone on to perform at the Metropolitan Opera, Opera Bastille in Paris, Deutsche Oper Berlin, the Teatro Regio Torino, The Chicago Lyric Opera, Michigan Opera Theater, Hamburgische Staatsoper, Dayton Opera, Cincinnati Opera, Fort Worth Opera, Utah Opera Festival, Kentucky Opera, Miami Lyric Opera, The San Francisco Merola Program, the Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia, the Julliard Opera Center, and the Baltimore Opera Studio. We encourage you to visit our alumni blog to learn about what our previous artists have accomplished since their work with Arbor Opera.
