Testimonials From Participants

My time in Greece and Syros with the Greek Opera Studio singing Donn’ Anna in Don Giovanni and Geisha in Butterfly helped me grow a lot in many aspects. It gave me the platform to experience stage craft, giving my debut for a Mozart role and getting the opportunities to sing in 2 operas, several concerts and Gala concerts at the same time. Learning how to deal with a big schedule, how to survive that and the rehearsal periods including coachings, lessons, masterclasses, audition and performing, to focus and enjoy, sharing the love for opera with people who are alike and believing in the same thing – gave me confidence and a better singer.  I made friends FOR LIFE!
I received wonderful help from my fellow colleagues, directors and everyone who worked at the Festival and the city we were welcomed. Syros itself was mindblowingly wonderful.
I very highly recommend this program. I had the time of my life and those 4 weeks changed me in many ways, for which I am very grateful.
