Opernfest Prague’s unique training model addresses the multifaceted needs of international soloists; centrally focused on individualized training, and our ability to offer introductions to houses that have available professional contract opportunities. All Voice Fellows work 1:1 with a stage director, conductor and language consultant on their solo repertoire, and conclude the fest with a solo performance accompanied by full orchestra.
The Opernfest training program is designed to specifically target the vocal, stylistic, and dramatic details that are often considered the deciding factors in international casting.
A fundamental component of the OFP program is fostering introductions to Opera Houses in the Czech Republic, and improved access to professional opportunities after OFP.
Through our relationships with some of Prague’s top house General Directors, Voice Fellows each receive a minimum of two house auditions during the program, auditioning directly for the decision makers of these houses.
