The LOIR offers formal professional training in performing operatic roles. It is led by a highly qualified educational team of mentors from different musical sectors. They include recognized world-class singers, conductors, and professional pianists. They each contribute to the ranges of competencies that constitute the singer's challenge.
Each participant gain a deeper understanding of the background and history of the opera they are working on, as they get a deeper understanding of the psychological motivations of the character being portrayed. The LOIR program is detailed and precise, carefully designed to improve vocal technique efficiently, as well as enhancing performing ability, stage presence, musicianship, and the correct Italian pronunciation in the Belcanto tradition. Our dedicated team will work closely with you to create and master your operatic roles, including Arias, recitatives as well as placing the voice within that context.
We look forward to working with you!
