Lyric Opera Studio Weimar (LOSW) is a comprehensive opera training program designed for emerging professional singers considering a career in Europe, with a focus on the German theater system. We offer intensive training in singing, movement, rehearsal process and role study, master classes, individual lessons and stagecraft instruction, as well as daily German language instruction and diction coaching. In addition to performing a role in a fully-staged opera with chamber orchestra (Die Fledermaus) or piano & cembalo (Die Zauberflöte & Le Nozze di Figaro), students receive sessions in audition techniques and career management and have the opportunity to audition for German state and private agents.

Our faculty consists of European and North American professionals with active careers in leading theaters across Europe. Students benefit from our international faculty’s breadth of experience in workshops in career management, successful audition techniques, résumé building for the German theater system and receive a realistic vision of being a singer in Germany.

Since the Studio’s founding in 2008, many of our alumni have secured professional engagements in such theaters as the Deutsches Nationaltheater Weimar, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Semper Oper Dresden, Glyndebourne, English National Opera and other professional theaters throughout Germany. In 2017, two-time LOSW alumna Catriona Morison was awarded both the Lied and Main Prize in the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition.
