What is VOA and VOF?
Vienna Opera Academy is for students who are looking for stage experience and the tools to prepare a role and connect to a network of other singers.
Vienna Opera Festival is directed toward professional opera singers who are searching for performance experience to learn an opera role for their CV. Only professional and emerging artist may apply.
The Vienna Opera Academy, which is an important part of the Vienna Opera Festival, is different from most other summer courses. It is not just a musical program, but also a chance to learn about the music industry and help build the tools you need for a career. To get an audition for a good agent has become increasingly difficult. During the Academy you will be singing real auditions for different agencies and receive their feedback and consultation. Through the Academy we hope many of our students will find future performance opportunities in Europe and possibly participate in the Vienna Opera Festival.
