The years following formal opera training are crucial. Professional coaching is beyond the financial reach of most young singers. The Auckland Opera Studio was established to provide New Zealand professional singers with personalised coaching, at no cost to themselves, within an environment of knowledge, enthusiasm and support... somewhere their talents can thrive.
This is the philosophy behind Auckland Opera Studio.
Singers, individually or in small Opera Studio classes, flourish within a professional support system. They continue honing their art in all its aspects between musical engagements. The majority of singers have completed an Emerging Artists Programme, overseas college tuition, or a graduate degree. Other senior artists come to the Opera Studio to work on one or two aspects of a performance.
The Auckland Opera Studio endeavours to ensure that talented and successful professional singers are given the opportunity to realise their full potential, both for New Zealand and in preparation for overseas study and/or work.
