Overview

Opera in the 21st Century is a performance-based, collaborative training experience for emerging opera professionals that challenges the conventions of opera performance, production, and design. 

The residency’s focus is to develop young opera professionals with the skills and experience to take them to the next level of their careers in an evolving industry. The multi-disciplinary program offers a unique opportunity to work with and learn from artists specializing in a range of areas including design, creation, composition, and production.

What does the program offer?

Opera in the 21st Century is an intensive residency devoted to practical skill extension and development for emerging professionals. The program offers classes in acting, voice, movement, and websites/resumes. Participants will leave Banff with new headshots and aria recordings.

Singers and répétiteurs will participate in workshop rehearsals and a showing of Mrs. Winslow’s Soothing Syrup (a new opera inspired by the opioid crisis), written by composer Michelle DiBucci and librettist Royce Vavrek. In addition, singers et répétiteurs will engage with small opera companies developing concepts for new works. Participants will also perform together in chamber concerts including Opera Pub, community concerts, and others.

Led by Opera in the 21st Century’s Artistic Director Joel Ivany, the stellar faculty is comprised of internationally recognized professionals from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines.

Who should apply?

We invite applications from post-secondary students and emerging artists, already at an advanced level of accomplishment and with a well-documented record of artistic exploration. Artists from historically underrepresented groups are especially encouraged to apply.

The program offers space for 12 singers and 2 répétiteurs.
