Take your artistry to a new level


All operas are performed wtih orchestra. 

The Opportunity:

The MIOpera (formerly the Midwest Institute of Opera) welcomes you to apply for their 2019 Summer Season!  This year we will be producing two full productions of  Puccini's La bohème and Strauss' Die Fledermaus.  Each production will be double cast, have a cover cast and understudies. You will get to perform your role on one performance. Covers will get to perform all the major ensembles and arias of their role on a cover concert.  Understudies will perform parts of their roles on a recital.  

Our program is intense, and you will be completely immersed in the production process during your time at MIOpera.  You will get vocal, dramatic and diction coaching on the role that you are performing.  You will get opportunities to perform on recitals and msterclasses.  All performers will sing in the chorus of both operas to maximize their understanding of the operas they are performing from different perspectives. 

Our program is for young and emerging artists to get tangible performance experience, and will help you bridge the gap between academic studies and professional artist.  Established emerging artists will also be the opportunity to add another full role on their résumé.
