The Opera Program is based in both Germany and in Greece. Each year the program is customised to the applicants needs for advancement in the vocal art form. This program provides both training and vocal performances, allowing professional debuts, working through scenes, private vocal lessons, and role study. It is important for the young artists to advance in the performance technique needed for auditions launching an opera career. Each summer there is a collaboration with German professional institutions, as well as in some conservatories in Athens, the University of the Aegean, the Apollo Theater, and Municipal buildings in Syros Greece. There is a direct connection to the International Festival of the Aegean which has celebrated 17 years and hundreds of performances featuring thousands of international artists. The Greek Opera Studio participants will be part of a Vocal Ensemble of solo voices, performing in main stage productions, opera galas, oratorio performances, a Liederabend, some Musical Theater, all while receiving private vocal lessons, coachings, Master Classes, Movement classes, and stage development courses.
