    Canada, a relatively small country in terms of population, has consistently “punched above its weight” when producing truly world-class opera singers. We excel in other operatic disciplines as well: our stage directors, designers and conductors are in global demand. Our greatest claim to fame is for our development of operatic tenors, but we have proudly created outstanding stars in all the other vocal categories as well. In this course we will celebrate some of Canada’s finest and greatest singers – performing in some of their most celebrated roles. This course will reinforce your pride in being Canadian!

    With Iain Scott, one of Canada’s foremost opera educators.
