About This Show
Growing up in Columbia, Ellen Douglas Schlaefer never dreamed that she would one day direct operatic productions for some of the great opera companies around the world. But, she has. And now she brings her energy and talent to Opera at USC, one of only a handful of colleges and universities in the country that offer special training and practice for aspiring opera stage directors. Schlaefer is also the creator of the non-profit FBN Productions, which brings specially commissioned operas for children into schools around the southeast.
