Our 2020 Program
Pacific Opera provides professional development and training to twelve Young Artists and provides access to masterclasses and additional opportunities to our Developing Artists, who are often in the process of completing their tertiary studies. Our training includes masterclasses on vocal technique, auditioning, languages, stage craft and opera role studies.
Our long-standing relationship with the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra provides our artists with valuable opportunities to perform regularly with a well-established orchestra, and our singers have the chance to be mentored by some of Australia's greatest artists.
2020 has been a challenging year for the arts worldwide, and our team has worked hard to facilitate learning and performance opportunities for our Young Artists and Developing Artists as COVID-19 protocols have allowed.
Our 2020 Young Artists have taken a deep-dive into role studies spanning the operatic canon and have been carefully guided in the development of audition packages that will serve them well into the future, whatever it may hold.
In spite of the uncertainties 2020 has presented the artistic communities, we have taken this opportunity to help our artists expand their repertoire, deepen their stagecraft and acting skills. You can meet our 2020 Young Artists here.
