Opera Productions

For the past forty-five years the SCC Opera Workshop has provided excellent training to aspiring young singers and actors, along with the opportunity to gain basic stage and performance experience while earning college credit.

Produced and directed by Dr. Charles Enlow, the SCC Opera Workshop is a fully staged opera production which premiers during Winter Quarter. Each production includes a selection of opera scenes and a one-act opera with an orchestra. Students have the opportunity to work with outstanding opera directors, coaches, costume designers, and conductors, and instrumentalists from the Greater Seattle community who are brought in for each production.

Auditions are held during Fall Quarter in the Shoreline Community College Campus Theater (1600 Building). Students will be directed to an online audition form to request their audition time. Singers/actors will need to bring one prepared song or aria to their audition. A pianist is provided.

Note: Participants must register for 1, 2, or 3 credits (MUSC 154, 155, or 156), depending on their level of involvement. Class meets 3-5:30 pm during winter quarter.
