What will I learn?

The application deadline for this course is **2 October 2023**

The RCS MMus Opera course has established an enviable record in training and preparing singers for a career in the industry, and continues to serve as an effective platform to launch young artists on to the first steps of their professional career pathway.

The Opera School is led by Head of Opera, Philip White. The school is also supported by Professor Stephen Robertson, a vocal pedagogue, and Opera lecturer Mark Hathaway. The department is a relatively small one, with 20-25 students over the two year course, so all students receive a great deal of individual attention. The RCS vocal staff is made up of experienced and distinguished teachers and practitioners, and a wide range of visiting coaches, directors and guest artists provide a constant source of external stimulus.

A varied programme of performance takes place throughout the year. Opera Scenes allow students to experience different repertoire and style, and to discover their own strengths and weaknesses. The second-year productions explore chamber opera repertoire and along with the full-scale productions, they provide opportunities to perform and collaborate with artists from across the RCS and with external visiting directors and conductors. Additionally, there are performance opportunities with Scottish Opera and regular concert series within RCS. Professional agents and opera companies are frequent visitors, ensuring the Opera School is a busy and vibrant place to learn.
