Honing your craft: opera courses at The Associated Studios

Jenna Simeonov

The Associated Studios, one of Britain’s leading academies for the study of opera, music theatre, and acting, is soon auditioning for both its upcoming 8-week and 4-month Opera Courses.

The 8-week course has a focus on French and English opera, and classes include Pilates, acting, French language, solo repertoire, ensemble repertoire, and performance classes with répétiteurs and directors. The course runs November 24-February 3; the audition application deadline is this week, but Associate Studios keeps waitlist, and there may be flexibility if you’re quick.

The next 4-month course runs twice weekly, from February 23-July 7, 2017, and singers should apply for an audition before the end of December. The course includes language coaching, private sessions with coaches and conductors, movement/Pilates classes, and sessions in professional etiquette, stagecraft, and audition technique.

If you’re interested in training that’s focused, yet flexible, have a look through the courses offered by Associate Studios. They audition on a rolling basis, with the next confirmed dates on November 30 and December 15, 2016. Click here to find out more about their Opera Courses, and to apply online.
