Opera Fusion’s Boot Camp!
Each summer Opera Fusion sponsors a unique career development program for young singers in South Florida — the Renee Greenberg Emerging Artists Project — or sometimes we affectionately call it Opera Boot Camp. Over 4 weeks, we bring 12-16 singers together to work with nationally renowned opera coaches and stage directors to hone their craft and provide invaluable experience as they launch their careers. And we do something that very few opera companies do — we don’t charge the singers to participate! Through the generosity of our patrons and sponsors, we are able to underwrite their tuition and cover the costs of producing the performance to showcase the amazing young talent we have in the area.
This year we will be celebrating the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote. We’re calling it WOMEN OF COURAGE and will feature fully-staged scenes from American operas including The Mother of Us All, The Ballad of Baby Doe, Susannah, and Harriet Tubman. Performances will be September 11th and 12th at the Sunshine Cathedral. Click here for more details.
