 Due to the world corona virus crisis, the Greek Opera Studio Summer 2020 program will be postponed to the summer of 2021. All productions and young artists accepted will be on hold for the 2021 summer season. We are viewing this isolation period as a time for creative growth and are working hard to implement new ideas and programs so that our 2021 Festival will be an even more rewarding experience for all involved. We are also now accepting  new applications for 2021! We wish everyone health and safety and we look forward to creating art together soon. Thank you!

We train you in the heart of Greece, the beautiful island of Syros, in singing, opera, and living life.

The Greek Opera Studio founded in 2010 by General Director Eilana Lappalainen, is in conjunction with the International Festival of the Aegean, MidAmerica Productions in New York, Midam International in central Europe, and ELArtists. The application process will place and divide the young artists into three categories: Resident Artists, Young Artists, and Apprentice Artists. Each applicant will be selected and positioned suited to their level of vocal development, assisting in proper placement and casting for the summer season.

Top teachers

GOS students receive Private Voice Lessons, Coachings, Language, Master Classes, Dance, Movement, Stage Development, and Lectures with International Artists and teachers who have performed on some of the worlds greatest stages.

This Young Artists Program and casting is based on the idea of a German based OPERA ENSEMBLE, representing every voice type cast, and allowing each participant performance opportunities, as one would find in German opera houses. The summer keeps the group in one unit, while allowing expansion as individuals for the training and performances needed to advance one’s individual talent even on the main stage for the professional Festival of the Aegean.

A Look Inside the Summer

The Greek Opera Studio will provide private coachings, private voice lessons, public Master Classes, movement/dance classes, acting training, oratorio classes, language, career placement and audition presentation.

The staff will include teachers and artists who have worked in the worlds most respected music and opera venues such as Carnegie Hall, La Scala, San Francisco Opera/ballet, the Deutsche Oper, Stuttgart Opera, Vienna State Opera, Bellas Artes in Mexico City, Weimar, Essen and many other German Opera houses. The selected staff works presently in the international opera business, in performing, conducting or directing, or they are free lance teachers or working in US or European universities such as in Vienna, Austria.
