OperaWorks’ curriculum and programs have expanded over the past 30 years as the demands of a singing career have changed. OperaWorks was the first program to offer classes in yoga, Feldenkreis, Aikido, visualization, expressive conducting for singers, marketing, career planning, and social media. The curriculum also includes acting, repertoire coaching, musical improvisation, acting improvisation, and audition techniques. Professional headshot and recording sessions have long been a part of the programs to help prepare singers present themselves professionally.

Our exceptional faculty are professional performers and teachers well-versed in opera traditions, but willing to explore the unique capabilities and artistry of each singer. Learn more about our philosophy.


Productions have been an important part of OperaWorks and include more than 30 original Pastiche operas and “Arias In Motion,” improvised recitals and concerts, and annual multi-ethnic “Sing-In the Holidays” concerts designed to bring communities together to promote tolerance and peace.

2015 saw the debut of The Discord Altar, a musically improvised opera about homelessness with text by award-winning playwright Meghan Brown. This production was the first in OperaWorks’ Arts for Social Awareness Project (ASAP), created to bring awareness to current social issues through live theater.
