Background:

CSUF Opera Theatre annually presents a program comprised of opera excerpts and one-acts each fall providing performance opportunities for university opera students. Accompanied by duo piano, singers perform on a minimally designed stage. In addition, students participate in all aspects of opera production from staging, set-design and lighting to costumes, props and make-up.

Janet Smith, mezzo-soprano, teaches voice and opera. She is especially noted for her musically sensitive and intelligent interpretation of the oratorio repertoire. Smith has appeared as guest soloist across the country with the Indianapolis Symphony, Utah Symphony, Spokane Symphony, Anchorage Basically Bach Festival, El Paso Pro Musica, Oklahoma Symphony and others.

Mark Salters is opera co-director, vocal coach and pianist at California State University, Fullerton. He has accompanied master classes by many well-known singers and coaches including Carlo Bergonzi, Sherill Milnes, Madame Régine Crespin, Richard Bonynge, Rodney Gilfry, Marni Nixon and more. As an active freelance accompanist, Salters regularly accompanies many of the finest young vocal artists of the L.A. Opera and Opera Pacific in recitals and competitions.
