About Oberlin Opera Theater
Oberlin Opera Theater has long been synonymous with excellence. Staging two major productions with orchestra each year, Oberlin Opera’s performances have received the highest critical acclaim, often challenging the operatic norm. Past conductors have included Robert Spano, Stephen Lord, Ward Holmquist, and Ari Pelto, and the program has developed some of today’s brightest stars, including Denyce Graves, Franco Farina, Christopher Robertson, Lisa Saffer, and Robert Sims. In 2002, 2003, 2007, and 2008, Oberlin graduates Carolyn Betty, Alyson Cambridge, Alek Shrader, and Edward Parks, respectively, won the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions.
