Operavision Academy

Operavision Academy Operavision Academy is an International Institute of Lyric Opera specializing in the professional development of opera singers on a broad scale.

Every singing artist arrives at a crossroad in their journey of service to music. Ask yourself, am I the best I can be? Do I feel free to give my best self when onstage, and am I singing the correct style, realizing the most understandable diction, and am I believable as the role I am asked to bring to life?

As our 7th edition comes to a close, we wish to thank our distinguished panel of clinicians, and all those who assisted and supported Operavision Academy this year. During this pandemic time, many artists have been without work, but above all without reason or inspiration to sing and keep their voices in the condition they need to in order to pursue a career. We have devoted ourselves to maintaining and protecting as many voices across the globe as we can. In turn, these talented artists devoted themselves beyond what was expected and so many barriers were broken, so many obstacles were overcome during the last two weeks. What we strive for at Operavision is to provide the artist with the tools they can use and ought to employ towards a successful career and longevity. Our clinicians are from various avenues and fields that offered diverse building tools to help sculpt and mould a well-rounded artist. On behalf of Aprile Millo and Dr. Maria Vetere, we wish these artists every possibility, joy in the fact that their voices bring healing and peace to those around them, and a successful long career. A deeply special group of individuals with unique gems in their throats. Each and everyone of them has what it takes and we can’t wait to see it. Our prayer for these times is that we can get back to live singing in a safe and efficient way so that art and music can continue it’s work in healing and expressing the deepest measures of the human soul. Congratulations to our 2021 artist roster. #operavisionacademy #OA2021 #operaprograms #vetere #millo #lee #gigi #operasingersofinstagram #summerofdreams

The cast of Verdi’s La Traviata, sung in such a heartfelt manner and with such attention to the text. This powerhouse opera was met with glorious tones and stile Verdiano by these artists. A special mention to the two leads, Argentinian soprano Valeria Rodriguez, and Canadian tenor Joel Ricci who were outstanding. Equally matched by a most sympathetic Germont in American Bass-Baritone Joseph Wilson. #operavision #OA2021 #opera #operaprograms #operasingersofinstagram #summerofdreams #verdi

Maestro Bonynge would’ve been very pleased by your discipline and your exceptional colours. #Operavisionacademy #OA2021 #summerofdreams #operaprograms #operasingersofinstagram

Verdi’s Il Corsaro opened our 7th day with stupendous singing based on authentic and proper pronunciation with beautiful phrasing and exciting acuti from all our artists. A standout is rising young Canadian baritone Alexander Leigh who is the authentic voce Verdiana required for the very difficult role of Seid. Stay tuned for him and these other amazing voices. #Operavisionacademy #OA2021 #opera #operaprograms #operasingersofinstagram @operacanada

The cast of Bellini’s Norma. This masterpiece is worthy of all the time and focus spent on style, emission, and phrasing.

Being an artist is about expanding your mind and perceptions on art. Tonight’s lecture by Operavision Co-Founder, Musicologist and Soprano Dr. Maria Vetere invited our artists to impress different ideologies on opera. The opening of hermeneutic windows surely illuminates what might not always be on the surface. #OA2021 #summerofdreams #opera #operaprogram #operasingersofinstagram #knowthineart #musicology #philosophy #psych #uncanny #gigithebrain #vetere

An evening spent on educational elements and mental health, which is so important for a singer, especially during pandemic times. We were honoured to have New York based therapist Claudia J. Albetta with us this evening. It was wonderful to hear the advice, informed guidance, and to see the immediate openness the artists had in their asking questions and sharing their emotions infront of their colleagues and her. What an enlightening event and life altering for many. Grazie Ms. Albetta. You changed us! #OA2021 #summerofdreams #opera #albetta #setyourintentions #liveyourbestlife #operasingersofinstagram #operaprogram
