Mascarade Opera Studio

At Mascarade Opera Studio (MOS) we continually strive for excellence in our training provision and firmly believe that we have the expertise and pedagogical skills to actualise our studio artists’ world-class potential. Our location in Florence, the capital of Tuscany, symbolises a return to the birthplace of opera whose Renaissance humanism also lies at the heart of MOS.

The Mascarade Opera Studio programme is a nine-month fully funded high-ability training programme in opera designed to support singers and répétiteurs of exceptional talent at the initial stages of their career. It includes enhanced performance skills training for opera provided by expert coaches, vocal consultants, performance specialists and invited master teachers, alongside orchestral showcases and a variety of carefully chosen performance opportunities.
