Opera Appreciation Workshops

Beautiful, mystical, magical, transporting. It's difficult to describe what it is about opera that moves us so deeply.

Following popular presentations at the 2007 festival, Opera Australia's educator Victoria Watson returns with two workshops to explore this mystery.

Emotion and great singing.

In an exciting interactive workshop, explore the power of emotion and the human voice. Listen to fabulous music - sing along if you wish and discuss how it makes you feel.

How do the great opera composers move us?

Voice, character, emotion, drama - it's all there. Share the music and explore the gifts of the great opera composers then discover how they get our skin to tingle and our hearts to yearn.

Victoria Watson knows her opera - she is a Soprano, an opera educator and voice teacher. Now a sought after soloist, she was, for ten years, an ensemble and principal artist with the Victoria State Opera.
