Ursula Sturgeon


Ursula Sturgeon is a rising junior in the Dramaturgy program at Carnegie-Mellon University. A specialist in operatic dramaturgy, Sturgeon has loved the art form all her life and is very excited to have the opportunity to work with opera on a professional level. Among smaller stints backstage, Sturgeon has previously worked as an assistant director on L’Enfant et les sortileges (Spotlight on Opera), an assistant dramaturg on I Think I’m Starting To Want To Be A Mother (Carnegie-Mellon School of Drama), and as the playwright and dramaturg of The Death of Don Juan (Scotch N’ Soda Theatre, where she has recently become the general public relations coordinator). Next spring Sturgeon will be the dramaturg on Carnegie-Mellon’s production of Alcina. In her spare time Sturgeon likes to write plays, sew, and draw cats.
