The performances of Hansel & Gretel were wonderful treats!
The Little Patuxent Opera Institute is an intensive, yet fun vocal workshop for singers who wish to participate in the exploration, study, and performance of operatic arias, scenes, musical theater repertoire and shorter complete works. The Institute offers training for young operatic voices in a nurturing, warm, collegiate environment and is designed to include lessons, coachings, acting classes, and Master Classes with internationally renowned artists and teachers. Students receive group and private instruction on the various elements of operatic performance and classical vocal arts, including character development, technique, and stage movement and blocking. Auditions are held in early and mid-spring, and the workshop culminates in summer performances. Please find our faculty listing here.
Our repertoire will be determined based on the outcome of our auditions. The repertoire will include musical theatre, operetta, operatic scenes with the possible addition of one or more one act operas.
Our training program culminates with three performances. Performances includes both participants levels and may include one act operas and scenes to be chosen from the standard literature. All repertoire choices will be decided upon the completion of our auditions. During your audition we will ask all participants to give us some ideas of what they would like to prepare and perform during their time at the Little Patuxent Opera Institute. We will also have at least one Aria and Art Song Recital this summer to take place in mid-July.
A typical day at LPOI includes all of the following; adjustments are made based upon individual and group needs.
