MSU Opera Theatre

Each season, the MSU Opera Theatre presents two fully staged and costumed productions with the MSU Symphony Orchestra. Opera performances are held in the historic Fairchild Theatre, a beautifully renovated space bringing technically advanced acoustics to a small venue setting. With no bad seat in the house, opera-goers enjoy perfect sound and close proximity all within air-conditioned comfort.
