UVAA Summer Opera Festival presents opera performances and concerts each summer with casts of elite young singers on the cusp of their careers. Students and emerging professionals come to Utah Valley from across the nation and abroad to train, coach, and study with an exceptional team of teachers and mentors including world-famous soprano, Deborah Voigt and General Director, Isaac Hurtado. Opera performances are fully staged, some including live orchestral accompaniment under the guidance of Artistic Director, Nicolas Giusti. The festival is an ideal opportunity for audiences to experience the artistry of future opera stars. Past participants include Metropolitan Opera tenor, Jonah Hoskins, and rising star Eric Taylor.
