**UPDATE: The Dramatic Voices Program is casting the following remaining roles in Wagner's Die Walküre for the 2023 season**
A program that looks at the dramatic voice as a whole - and prepares it for the competitive world of classical music - through intense training with world-class faculty.
World-renowned faculty will guide participating artists in musical coachings, language coachings, character analysis & role preparation coachings, preparing for auditions in the German theatre system, public masterclasses, professional development sessions, individual career sessions and more.
Artists will have the opportunity to work on, prepare and perform a role in a full production of Wagner's Die Walküre with orchestra as well as participate in the German Lieder Residency.
Jully 7-23, 2023 in Berlin, Germany, with online sessions in June 2023
No application fee, no age limit. All accepted artists will receive a partial scholarship.
'Because the program has no age limit, young dramatic voices get to share the stage with seasoned professionals who are participating in the program because they want to sing a particular role or are changing Fachs. I established solid professional relationships with people who are in the industry, and working in the opera houses in Europe. And what I have received in lessons, coachings, masterclasses and performance opportunities, headshots, recordings has been one of the most cost effective investments I have done.'
- Stephanie DePrez, Soprano [Woglinde, Das Rheingold 2019]
'Everything that was promised by the program came through beautifully. The daily coachings were impeccable, the voice teaching was fantastic. I feel like I have arrived at another level. I can add Wagner to my repertoire and I owe this to the Dramatic Voices Program Berlin.'
- Marc Molomot, Tenor [Mime, Das Rheingold 2019]
'My favorite part were the coachings and lessons, which were at a very high level - they were specific and always done from an encouraging point of view. I did a lot of artistic growth in an environment that is supportive and encourages risk-taking.'
- Jennifer Carter, Soprano [Wellgunde, Das Rheingold 2019]
