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. LOSW develops singers through intense daily German language and diction coaching, training in singing, movement, rehearsal process and role study, as well as master classes, individual lessons and stagecraft instruction. In addition, participants benefit from sessions in audition techniques and career management. Students’ participation in the program culminates with the performance of a role in a fully-staged opera. Singers are able to develop the necessary skills to audition and work as artists in the most important sphere of opera – the German-speaking world.
