How To Tell A Scary Story: An Original Opera (UCOS)


The Undergraduate Company of Opera Singers (UCOS) is an entirely student-organized opera company that gives young opera singers the opportunity to perform and sing in fun, educational productions. Our mission is to give hands-on learning experiences to young performers wanting to supplement their opera training, as well as production experiences for undergraduates interested in the behind-the-scenes work of a theater company.  For the past two years, we have given young opera singers the opportunity to perform in multiple productions, including but not limited to Dido and Aeneas, Pirates of Penzance, and Iolanthe. Our singers have learned a great deal about performing, stagecraft, and arts administration by being a part of our group, and most importantly, have had a lot of fun along the way!



For the first time in its history, UCOS has commissioned an original opera to be written for it. How To Tell A Scary Story is a new opera composed, written, and organized completely by undergraduate students in the Bienen School of Music. The opera tells the story of three camp counselors telling ghostly tales to their campers. As they compete with one another, the scary stories vividly come to life before their eyes.
