Opera Scenes

Schoenberg Hall View Program

Join the Herb Alpert School of Music and Opera UCLA for an evening of scenes from operas new and old.


Opera UCLA is designed to provide students in the Voice and Opera Area with the tools they will need to succeed in opera performance. Students participate in fully-staged productions, experimental performances, and Opera Workshop training in movement, dance, and scene work. Our alumni have appeared at all the major opera houses of the world, including The Metropolitan Opera, La Scala Milan, Vienna State Opera, Paris Opera, Covent Garden and LA Opera. Our location in Los Angeles, a creative epicenter for new opera production in this country, enables our students to experience new work constantly. Our program, while committed to teaching skills necessary to succeed professionally in performing the standard opera repertoire, also provides exciting opportunities to engage with living composers and librettists, and the new works they create. The small size of the undergraduate and graduate student body enables one-on-one interaction with our experienced and dedicated faculty. Voice and Opera faculty coordinate their efforts in order to ensure the best possible training and preparation for students.


This event is made possible thanks to donors to the Peter Kazaras Opera Production Fund, and established with a generous lead gift by founding dean Judith L. Smith. The Peter Kazaras Opera Production Fund supports productions by Opera UCLA in perpetuity, positively impacting generations of students at The UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music.


This event is made possible thanks to generous support from Philip Hess in memory of Margaret Hess.
