National Graduate Opera Program
The Master of Music (Opera Performance) program is a collaboration between Victorian Opera, Melbourne Conservatorium of Music and the University of Melbourne that began operating in 2012.
The program is a two-year course that provides rigorous and intensive training in the discipline of operatic singing and repetiteur training, including studies in vocal coaching, Italian language, ensemble singing, role development and stage craft, English, French, German and Russian diction, and further opportunities to work as a practising singer within Victorian Opera.
On emerging from this program, graduates are equipped with the appropriate skills to audition for any professional opera company with a number of fully-learned roles in the original language, demonstrating a thorough understanding of the nature of the role and its delivery, in context, from an operatic stage. Graduates receive a Master of Music (Opera Performance) degree from the University of Melbourne.
