Faculty and Guest Artists

Above: Stage director David Gately teaches a master class at the Opera Institute.

At the core of the Professional Curriculum Model of operatic training are faculty and professional guest artists who are a critical part of the program. Guest artists have included composers, stage directors, master teachers, clinicians in business strategies, stage managers, artist managers, coaches, conductors, and general directors of opera companies. All members of the Opera Institute as well as voice majors who study in the Opera Programs are invited to experience these special guests.
