Musical Theater and Opera

Contact person: John McCabe-Juhnke

Each year since 1955, the Bethel theater and music departments have collaborated to produce an opera, operetta or major musical—sometimes more than one in a single season. Currently, Bethel alternates between staging an opera or a musical each year. Some of the more recent productions include Die Fledermaus, The Light in the Piazza, The Magic Flute and Brigadoon. Bethel’s chamber orchestra serves as the orchestra for the opera productions.
