About Us

Handel Opera Academy was created in 2021 to help young singers and musicians achieve artistic excellency in baroque opera performance.

Having realised that there are very few opportunities to get quality experience in staging baroque opera the founders of the academy decided to build on their experience in opera performance and management to provide a platform for high quality artistic training.

Handel Opera Academy draws from modern early music practice and from the German house system. A team of dedicated coaches and world class artists provides a unique opportunity for singing students and young professionals to take their first steps in a professional world of baroque opera. 

The major focus of the academy is a historically informed performance practice. Ornamentation, phrasing and recitativo singing receive a lot of attention. Participants work in an environment equivalent to an opera house in terms of schedule and working with the director. They are provided with language coaching, movement classes and dedicated time with repetiteurs.
