New Opera 101

Masterclass and showcase for emerging singers and pianists

New Opera 101 is a masterclass intensive for emerging singers and collaborative pianists, culminating in a concert showcase, Songbook

Participants are assigned contemporary Canadian repertoire, individually curated from Tapestry’s forty-year history of developing and producing new works. Singers and pianists prepare and refine their repertoire, expertly coached by expert new opera clinicians in three days of masterclasses. The performers then showcase their work in a concert performance, Songbook, alongside the clinicians.

The masterclass invites emerging artists who already are enrolled in or have completed a bachelor level performance degree to expand their repertoire and learn from some of Canada’s leading interpreters of new opera.
