We live in an age where opera, no longer restricted to theaters and concert halls, is happening in every place imaginable... BW Opera presented two performances of Henry Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas at RED Space in downtown Cleveland...with moving results, proving that Dido and Aeneas remains a powerful theater piece wherever staged.

BW's comprehensive curriculum gives you skills to excel in voice, acting, movement, and interpretation.
You’ll develop your whole-body-instrument. You’ll learn to interpret text and music with imagination and communicate with power and authenticity through dynamic physical and vocal actions.
Rigorous coursework provides a foundation for your studies. Private lessons, coaching, workshops, master classes, scenes programs and fully staged opera productions offer real-world-focused learning opportunities.
Our undergraduate-only Conservatory provides you with direct access to prepare and perform for lead roles in BW main stage and opera workshop productions, music theatre and theatre productions, and choral concerts. You'll be challenged, inspired and prepared to become the best artist you can be through experiences that include vibrant and dynamic works of theatre.
With an emphasis on experiential learning within a liberal arts environment, the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory of Music blends artistic excellence with innovation. You are encouraged to participate and attend BW’s numerous productions and programs. Also beneficial to your studies and networking opportunities is BW’s connection to Cleveland and its vibrant performing arts community, a quick 20-minute drive from campus.
