Department of Perfoming Arts of MSFAU State Conservatory is constructed under three programs: Theatre, Classical Ballet and Opera Programs. With its 55 faculty members, of which 14 full-time faculty members consisting of 5 professors, 4 associate professors, 3 assistant professors, 2 asistants and its 41 part-time faculty members, Department of Performing Arts serves around 120 college level students. The Department also offers Master’s: and Proficiency in Arts: degrees through the MSFAU Institute of Social Sciences.
In addition to the direct inspiration of experienced actors and stage managers, Theatre Program offers its students a highly conceptual and intellectual mode of education in which we can trace a strong vessel of interdisciplinary study. Opera Program features an integrated approach both to the mechanism of voice production, singing techniques and to the instruction of stylistic aspects of vocal/operatic repertory. The program offers courses ranging from developing musical skills, pronunciation and joint acting-singing abilities to gaining experience in stylistic interpretation, stage performance and opera productions. The two programs of Classical Ballet and Modern Dance in which the students specialize in classical or contemporary dancing, form the main body of education of dance in the Conservatory. By the assistance of intensive courses offered by related programs, students can easily develop their skills and artistic capacity and thus they can reach highest tecnical standarts within a few years of college level study. Classical Ballet Program also offers pre-college level education and it is required to take this education and training before moving on the college level education in this field.
All three programs contribute effectively to the annually organized activities of the Conservatory and the Department of Perfoming Arts has the most prefered programs among the others in college level study.
