At the heart of every great experience is passion – for a new culture, a new adventure, even a new way of expressing yourself. It’s about experiencing those moments that leave you feeling energized, enriched and renewed. And it’s about creating memories that will inspire you for a lifetime.
Welcome to the Land of Enchantment Opera Summer Institute in Gallup, New Mexico, a city that celebrates Adventure, Steeped in Culture.
This five week training program consists of daily lessons and coachings for each student, as well as master classes with an all-star faculty. Additionally, students will sing in several public concerts, including scenes performances, the yearly donors’ dinner, and other events scheduled throughout the program. Students will also participate in Alexander technique classes and acting seminars.
The goal of the Land of Enchantment Opera Institute is to provide students with a top-notch learning experience in order to bridge the gap between an undergraduate or graduate degree program and entering the world of professional opera performance. In order to ensure that students receive the best possible education during their time in Gallup, the audition process is highly selective and competitive. Approximately 25 talented young singers are selected out of the audition pool and invited to receive the intense vocal training, personalized attention, and high quality instruction offered by the faculty, each of whom is a recognized master in his or her field. Our young singers have gone on to perform in some of the most famous venues both in America and abroad. Distinguished alumni include baritone Nathan Myers of Deutsche Oper Berlin and bass-baritone Jeremy Milner of San Francisco Opera and Philadelphia Opera.
