    Meitar Opera Studio

    The Young Artists Program of the Israeli Opera

     

    Meitar Opera Sudio is a practical study and performance program for young Israeli opera singers who graduated from any given music academy and who are on the verge of embarking on an operatic career. The major goal of the Opera Studio is to nurture operatic talent in Israel and to help young opera singers to work in their profession. The Opera Studio program is aimed at young Israeli opera singers who are willing to hone their craft, further their studies on an ongoing basis and gain stage experience, thus getting ready for a full-fledged operatic career.

     


    The actual curriculum of the Opera Studio is aimed at enlarging the experience of the participating singers and enabling them to gain musical and dramatic knowledge on a personal level and even more so as part of ensemble work.

    At the end of first ten years of the Opera Studio program the 45 singers who were part of the program have between themselves performed around 100 roles in various Israeli Opera productions, side by side with participating in numerous concerts and performances in which they performed a very wide repertoire. Singers who have graduated from the Opera Studio program continue to perform in Israeli Opera productions on a regular basis as well as perform with orchestras all over Israel. All Opera Studio members performed most successfully in the Israeli Opera production of La traviata both in Tel Aviv (October 2001) and on a most successful tour to Wiesbaden, Germany (May 2003). In the fall of 2005 all members of the Opera Studio participated in a production of Dido & Aeneas which was performed in Tel Aviv and in Stuttgart. In the summer of 2010 all Opera Studio singers participated in the world premiere of Alice in Wonderland (David Sebba). Notable Opera Studio productions include Le nozze di Figaro (Mozart) with the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra, IBA as well as with the Israel Sinfonietta Beersheva and as La boheme (Puccini).
