Opera Viva’s Professional Development program provides enrichment and rejuvenation for collegiate music educators with a focus on opera studies.

 
“Weeks of world class instruction is unheard of for a professor of experience and maturity; this is something usually reserved for the young artists.  I could not be more impressed with the generous and inspired faculty.  Opera Viva! has gathered a treasure trove of experienced artists who know how to teach!”
 
– Eileen Moremen, Director of Opera Theater and Voice Faculty, Kennesaw State University
 

 
Participants will observe and interact with the Opera Viva! Young Artist’s curriculum and work with the world-renowned faculty in Verona, Italy. The Professional Development participants will have the opportunity to network with colleagues, with a goal of stimulating ideas in order to develop and enhance their university curriculum. Upon request, participants will have access to faculty for private instruction in voice, coaching and stage directing.  They will also have access to the Opera Viva! faculty for daily reviews and debriefing sessions. At the conclusion of the program, participants will receive a certificate of completion to submit to their university professional development coordinator.
