“Extraordinary Opera Training!” 

Centre for Opera Studies in Italy (COSI):

The Summer Italian Language and Opera Training Program – Widely welcomes international participants.

COSI provides a unique and extraordinary international opera performance training program for international undergraduate and graduate students, emerging artists, avid amateurs, in-career artists, and voice teachers seeking excellent professional. Within a short span of time, COSI not only established itself as a highly respected  opera education and performance program in Europe,  it is now embracing an ever-expanding roster of international participants. Dedicated to providing the best with the focussed and refined training they require, COSI affords opera artists and educators the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the language and the culture that produced Italian opera, an appreciation that is vital to their artistic development. An intensive summer opera program, COSI fills a distinct gap by fostering young opera talent in an international setting. Participants not only add roles and repertoire to their experience, establishing a crucial boost to their abilities and audition prospects,  they also gain insights into the dynamics the opera professional, and forge vital career-enhancing relationships with faculty and peers.

Since 2007 COSI has embraced the training of almost four hundred singers, pianists, conductors, stage directors and stage managers. Twenty-two of these have been a part of the Canadian Opera Company Ensemble Studio during or after their COSI training, and fifty-five have taken their places in Canada’s young artist opera programs in Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto, and Montreal, as well as the Munich Opera training program, the Juilliard Opera Center, and Lindemann Program of the Metropolitan Opera.

The COSI Experience

The COSI summer experience is rich in operatic training and performances, with immersion in Italian life and Italian language classes. Internationally renowned faculty in operatic performance, voice and piano teaching and coaching, dramatic coaching, and lyric Italian are converging with advanced singers and pianists to create a high level of performance in the traditional grandeur of Italian performance venues.
