During the COVID pandemic, Opera Pomme Rouge has been offering free monthly online acting classes for opera singers instead of our usual Young Artists Program, as we want to support artists! Because of the spread of the coronavirus, we have decided to extend this course until May 2021.
The theme for May is "Liberating yourself through the seven universal emotions based on Commedia dell'arte - Nr. 2 Surprise and Anger <Hansel and Gretel>".
This course is for opera singers, vocal students or hobby singers over the age of 17. (Age restrictions are a guide only. We would be happy consider exceptions. Please feel free to contact us.)
The maximum number of participants per class is 5, in the style of a semi-private lesson. 3 classes will be offered every month. Please select one at your convenience in the application form.
The instructor is Anna Etsuko Tsuri, who is a world-experienced Opera Director who has trained at the biggest opera houses in the world, such as the Vienna State Opera, the Bavarian State Opera, Théâtre du Soleil a Paris, etc.
