Due to the world coronavirus 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.

Greek Opera Studio
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. It is a summer classical vocal program suited to young artists focusing on entering the world of opera at a career entry level, as well as advanced university music students interested in intensive training and stage development between semesters.
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. 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.
