The Opera Studio

The project

Opera Studio, which is the fruit of a long collaboration between the Opéra Royal de Wallonie-Liège and the Institut Royal Supérieur de Musique et de Pédagogie – IMEP, is a veritably professionalising experience in teaching opera.

This outstanding partnership allows talented young artists to express themselves on an international stage. This exceptional training will be supervised by soprano Patrizia Ciofi. The members of Opera Studio will benefit from private tuition in opera once to twice per month, will meet the soloists who are on the programme for the 2024-2025 season at the Opéra Royal de Wallonie-Liège, will participate in Master classes and will take part in the life of the institution.
