Between July 9 and 29, the Israel Vocal Arts Institute (IVAI) will hold its international opera workshop in Tel Aviv. Founded and led by legendary Metropolitan Opera coach Janette Dorneman, from this season on it will be headed by her close associate, John Norris (Pictured).
The program features concerts and master classes, as well as opera productions in minimalist settings, accompanied by piano. For the first time, the All You Can Do with Opera project for children will take place within the framework of the workshop.
Most of the activities are open to the public at reasonable prices. For young participants, the workshop gives them a chance to learn with some of the best teachers around, while for the audience it is a rare opportunity to peek into the world of opera singing and teaching and see magic happening before their eyes, when the students’ singing improves within half an hour of the master class.
