Music Workshop

Level 1, Sydney Conservatorium of Music

Opera Lab is a six-day summer school for aspiring young singers aged 15-25.

Led by experienced professionals Narelle Yeo, Wendy Dixon and Simon Kenway Opera Lab will grow a range of skills from operatic ensemble to interpretation of text, singing in a foreign language to stage acting culminating in a staged performance for all participants.

The program will be challenging, exciting and stimulating as you develop operatic skills with like-minded performers culminating in a short public performance involving all participants.

By the end of this course you will have:

  • developed skills in collaborative performance
  • fine-tuned language skills for singing, primarily in Italian and English
  • developed a capacity to follow a conductor while singing and acting on stage
  • learnt to realistically analyse strengths and weaknesses within your current performing abilities in opera, operatta and music theatre style
  • built your audience communication skills to deliver a compelling narrative while singing.
