Unit of study_

Advanced Opera Repertoire 3 - VSAO5635

Year - 2020

Students work for one hour per week individually with a vocal coach and for two hours in ensemble class as scheduled, enabling them to explore and refine their learning of the repertoire prepared for aspects of coursework including mainstage productions, performances of solo and audition repertoire, masterclasses and internal and external concerts. These units impart to students the wide range of skills needed to successfully bring their participation in an opera production from the first day of music rehearsal to a successful performance outcome. As part of the final year of the Masters, students will undertake an independent project which documents aspects of opera training from each of the areas of study. Previous study in Advanced Opera Voice, Advanced Opera Repertoire, Advanced Opera Stage and Advanced Opera Diction has led towards the development of a personal template for the preparation of an operatic role. The Capstone Project (Opera Performance Portfolio) is an independent study which takes place over Semesters 1 and 2 and is assessed as part of Opera Repertoire 4.
