The Show-Me Opera is a troupe of motivated solo singers who are involved in the opera workshop and opera production courses. These courses are open to undergraduate and graduate students by audition and focus on the study, preparation, and performance of selected operatic or musical theatre works.

The Show-Me Opera performs a variety of opera and musical scenes in the fall semester and presents a fully staged opera production in the spring semester, in collaboration with the University Philharmonic. Show-Me Opera performances take place in the beautifully restored Missouri Theatre in downtown Columbia. The Show-Me Opera is also actively engaged in outreach, taking scene programs to local schools and community organizations. The Show-Me Opera is under the direction of Christine Seitz.
