2021 Summer Workshop Details

A hybrid virtual + in-person experience

The Music-Drama Workshop is a two-week engagement featuring tailored instruction for the aspiring singing actor and theater technician.

 

The 3-Week Singing Actor Track will include elementary instruction in stage combat, stagecraft skills, movement, musical interpretation & improvisation, breathing techniques, and care of the voice. In addition to regular class instruction, students may also qualify (if they choose) to participate in master classes.

Two levels of participation are offered:

  • Standard – provides standard class sessions of studio class, musical interpretation, and music-drama.
  • All Access – provides all of the sessions and content above + one-on-one private lesson each week and access to special sessions.

The Technical Theater Track is postponed until we are able to fully on-site.

*Prior opera experience is not required to participate in the Workshop or in the recital.
