Students will undertake this subject to develop knowledge, and isolate and cultivate the skills, necessary to work as an elite opera performer/opera skills facilitator. The subject gives focus to repertoire from either the baroque/ classical periods, or the romantic/twentieth-century periods, depending on the cycle of repertoire selection for the course. This will involve working in group and solo contexts to consolidate and develop:

- Sophisticated approaches to interpreting complex operatic characterisations and roles;

- Strategies for building and maintaining relationships with community and industry partners;

- Strategies for leading opera skills workshops in community/educational contexts.

Intended learning outcomes

On completion of this subject, students will be able to demonstrate skill in:

  • perform a variety of operatic styles appropriate to the baroque/ classical or romantic/twentieth-century periods;
  • participate in dramatic interaction within the context of an extended operatic scene;
  • develop and facilitate knowledge transfer in the form of a workshop intended for an educational and/or outreach context;
  • reflect critically on the work of the cohort and constructive contribution to peer-review of student work.
