Continuing to survey the major schools of acting, this unit develops and refines methodologies and strategies for establishing expert stage skills in opera performance, building the performer's role as expert and confident communicator. Skills in movement and movement style are facilitated by separate classes in dance. The unit is application based, allowing students to experiment with implementation of critical theoretical ideas in a performing environment.
