In Summer 2015, we offered two Intensive Class for Opera Singers, one with Gerd Uecker and one with Cheryl Studer. Each class was also accompanied by Prof. Jonathan Alder and Janice Alder-Alford. Together with Uecker and Studer, they formed a unique team that was offering a very special compact course for young professional opera singers, covering all aspects of theatre life. Coaching, Interpretation and Audition training for the participants' repertoire was the main focus of the course. Alongside this, the course dealt with repertoire, presentation, marketing, style, general questions concerning the profession and the preparation work needed for the demands of a successful and fulfilling operatic career.
