Opera singers come to the Academy to develop their vocal and stage skills. The training program allows for the study of different repertoires and roles in individual or group sessions with several highly-specialised teachers including Jean-Marc Bouget, Margaret Singer, Michelle Wegwart, Jeff Cohen, Irène Kudela, and Muriel Corradini.
Louis Combaud, dancer and choreographer offer coaching sessions during which singers work with their bodies learning about gesture and movement through space.
There are also masterclasses with the Paris Opera’s Music Director Philippe Jordan, as well as Karine Deshayes, Ludovic Tezier, Hedwig Fassbender.
Singers are placed in real-life professional situations, participating in recitals and opera productions as part of the Academy’s programming or in other productions at the Opéra Bastille and the Palais Garnier. 

Applications are now open for the auditions for the 2023/24 singer residencies at the Académie.

The highly-specialised training offered to pianist-vocal coaches is intended to prepare them for the rigorous demands of their profession. Focusing on several areas of development, they acquire a methodical approach to the different repertoires and gain from individual and group working sessions with the Paris Opera’s own vocal coaches. In addition, they coach the trainee singers during their lessons and rehearsals or during the Academy’s concerts. They also assist the conductor in productions scheduled at the Amphitheatre and during rehearsals of the Paris Opera’s opera and ballet productions.

Applications are now open for the auditions for the 2023/24 pianist-rehearsal coach residencies at the Académie.
