Season

a welcome to our season

UofT Opera is one of the leading operatic training programs in Canada, offering both a Masters degree and a Diploma in Opera.  With an average of 20 students, UofT Opera is modelled on Young Artist programs at professional opera companies and the limited enrolment ensures that every student benefits from the exceptional training offered by our renowned faculty and guest instructors. Each year, UofT Opera presents three main-stage productions in the MacMillan Theatre (a fully equipped opera house), all of which are staged, with orchestra, sets and costumes.  One of these productions is a world premiere of an opera written specifically for the Young Artists of UofT Opera.  The intensive daily curriculum includes musical coaching, repertoire preparation, audition techniques, diction, acting and stagecraft, choreography, movement and singing lessons, as well as workshops and master classes with resident and guest coaches.  Graduates of our program emerge well equipped with the versatility and discipline required for a professional career, and are consistently selected for participation in Young Artist programs in Canada and throughout the world.
