Experience both the majesty and the humanity of opera...music that transcends combined with theater that inspires!

Performing in the intimate Lyric Theater of the Murchison Performing Arts Center, UNT Opera is proud to present some of the world's greatest operatic masterpieces, interpreted by the stars of tomorrow: talented voice students in UNT's world-renowned College of Music.

  • "The local opera scene is small, but amazing things are going on in Denton. The addition of renowned director Jonathan Eaton to the faculty of the University of North Texas College of Music has bumped the level of the productions up to a remarkable level. Case in point is the new production of Leoš Janáček’s fantasy opera The Cunning Little Vixen."

  • "This production is a tour-de-force for the actors but equally so for the production staff."

  • "The entire group of student singers is superb. Give them all an “A.”"
    - TheaterJones Performing Arts News

  • "Street Scene... a production so excellent that it could grace the stage of many regional theaters - and that includes the talented cast..."
    - TheaterJones Performing Arts News

  • "Remarkably compelling... partly thanks to a cast of uniformly outstanding singers... the audience was so captivated... an intense couple of hours, and a transformation of Gounod's opera... I was fascinated from the start."
