First practical experience for young singers
Since 2006, the Basel Opera Studio OperAvenir has been supporting young singers in their first steps in professional theatre work after graduation. The members of the opera studio perform various roles on stage. They also create a varied programme with their own projects, concerts and performances.
Varied further training
The additional training in the opera studio lasts about two years. Applicants come from all over the world.
The focus is on weekly lessons in singing and elocution technique, body and acting training; supplemented by workshops and master classes. With the 20/21 season, Hélio Vida takes over the direction of the OperAvenir opera studio.
