Apprentice Program for Professional Young Opera Singers

The Crested Butte Opera Studio provides gifted young singers and pianists opportunities to study and perform with leading opera professionals during a six-week residency at the Crested Butte Music Festival. Under the direction of the Opera Studio’s Artistic Director, Lynn Baker, participants will undergo a rigorous training program that includes forty hours per week of vocal and dramatic instruction. Students will perform all lead roles in the Festival’s double bill of Offenbach’s The Island of Tulipatan and Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi, present an evening of cabaret, perform in a vocal chamber and art song recital and sing in public master classes by visiting faculty, including tenor Barry Banks and dramaturg Cori Ellison.
