Now in our fourteenth year, Lyric Opera Studio Weimar will present Le nozze di Figaro and Die Zauberflöte in multiple performances in our historic mainstage theater, in the heart of Weimar's beautiful Altstadt. Productions are directed by General Director and international bass-baritone Damon Nestor Ploumis, and conducted by Maestro Olaf Storbeck.
Our comprehensive training program is 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. You'll benefit from sessions in audition techniques, résumé building and career management, and have the opportunity to audition for German state and private agents. You’ll sing a role in a fully staged opera, build the skills you need to audition successfully, and learn what it takes to have a career in the German theater system.
Our international faculty are leading artists and pedagogues with active careers in leading theaters across Europe, and offer instruction in every facet of the art and business of opera. You’ll learn and grow in a friendly, supportive atmosphere, make invaluable professional connections, and build lasting friendships with colleagues from around the world.
Since the Studio’s founding in 2008, many of our alumni have secured professional engagements in such theaters as the Deutsche Oper Berlin, Deutsches Nationaltheater Weimar, Semper Oper Dresden, Glyndebourne, Staatsoper Wien, and other professional theaters throughout Germany and Europe.
