The Principal Artist Program of the UVAA provides advanced college and emerging professional singers with the opportunity to perform featured roles in a fully staged opera with orchestra, while exploring and refining language, acting and stylistic skills. Each singer participates in master classes with incredible guest artists such as international superstars Deborah Voigt, Frank Lopardo, and Wendy Bryn Harmer.

Metropolitan opera character tenor, Anthony Laciura, one of the most celebrated operatic singer/actors will stage direct Ariadne auf Naxos (sung in German with English super-titles) while UVAA founder Isaac Hurtado will direct Cosi fan Tutte (sung in Italian with English super-titles). Italian maestro, Nicolas Giusti will conduct the ULO orchestra in both productions.
