The Master’s programme in opera educates opera singers at the highest artistic level. After completing your study, you will be able to professionally master and perform roles within a wide range of genres and styles.
Key elements of the programme include
- singing and musical rehearsal
- stage movement and acting technique
- physical and mental training
- a practical and theoretical Master’s assignment
The programme will allow you to develop your own personal musical and dramatic style. You will also develop good collaborative skills and an understanding of opera as a collective artform. All the subjects are integrated into stage productions, which are therefore entirely central to the programme. All classes are mandatory.
The Academy of Opera collaborates with the Norwegian National Opera and Ballet on annual productions with orchestra at the Norwegian National Opera House. During the programme you will also be given the chance to participate in master classes, audition training, auditions, study trips and entrepreneurship classes, all of which will help you make the transition to working professionally as an opera singer.
