nuRturing singers and attracting
new opera lovers

The company’s dual mission is to nurture emerging opera artists through rehearsal and performance opportunities, seminars and master classes, and to attract new audiences by offering them high-quality opera presentations featuring exciting young artists at little- or no-cost. Our emphasis is on ‘learning by doing,’ backed by the philosophy that only superior craft creates great art.

BUILDING A FOUNDATION OF musical essentials

Young singers receive first-rate, completely free private coaching, the support of enthusiastic and talented colleagues, and collaboration with professional instrumentalists, culminating in a highly enriching performance experience.  Audiences enjoy the fresh excitement of experiencing role debuts and witnessing important landmarks in each singer’s artistic process.
