Programme of activities

For Singers

Perfecting and promoting young singers’ talents is a fundamental objective of the Paris Opera.

The educational programme includes :

> a structured approach to the various repertoires through workshops organized and overseen by recognised specialists
> rôle study
> classes around the various works studied (pronunciation classes, diction and vocal control, theatre workshops, and body dynamics)
> possible participation in Paris Opera productions (secondary rôles or understudies)
> participation in concerts and productions with orchestral accompaniment.

Trainees are enrolled for one season with the possibility of continuing for one additional season.

For Coaches

The programme will enable pianists to acquire specific coaching skills.

Trainees are enrolled for one season with the possibility of continuing for one additional season. Coaches are required to attend the Atelier Lyrique for a minimum 25 hours per week.

Coaches will be expected to work with singers themselves under the guidance of a chef de chant. In addition, they will receive an introduction to orchestral conducting and prompting. Trainees will also be given the opportunity to accompany certain concerts or performances by the Atelier Lyrique.
