Grades 9-12: Summer Opera Camp

  • Daily individual coachings with Minnesota Opera artistic staff
  • College, audition and career guidance

Opera Artist +

Where do I go after I graduate from college? How do I share my love of opera beyond the stage? Opera Artist + (plus) is a new week-long residential summer camp for currently enrolled college-aged students to refine their craft and explore what it means to be an opera artist in the twenty-first century. Sessions will include daily one-on-one vocal coaching and movement sessions, round-table discussions with professional artists, and a mock audition. Other session will look at the increasingly important and diverse role of Teaching Artistry, including teaching opportunities both in and out of the classroom and the growing field of creative aging.

Instructors include Minnesota Opera artistic staff, in addition to guest artists and lecturers.
