The award-winning Crane Opera Ensemble produces two, fully-staged productions each year (one with orchestra and one with a chamber instrumental group or piano). In addition, an Opera Scenes Workshop provides students the opportunity to study a partial role and perform it in an informal venue. The ensemble enjoys a collaborative relationship with the Department of Theatre & Dance, producing a musical every three years. Our opera education outreach program has served nearly 5,000 North Country school children, many experiencing opera for the first time.

Several productions have won awards from the National Opera Association, The American Prize and the American College Theater Festival.
