Edythe Bates Old Professor of Music
Director of Moores Opera Center
Welcome to the Moores Opera Center!
We invite you to discover why MOC is one of the best university opera production programs in the nation. With four fully-staged productions per year, expert faculty, affordable tuition, and a metropolitan arts scene, University of Houston offers comprehensive training in opera performance. While our primary goal is your education, we treat the program like a professional regional company to make sure you are properly prepared to compete once you leave school. We work very hard and we attract dedicated people, but we also laugh a lot on the way. Being part of an opera can be a joyous, thrilling, and life-altering experience. Join us!
