Opera Studio


The Staatsoper Stuttgart is one of the most important opera houses in Europe. An essential basis for the success is the ensemble of top-class singers, who are regularly invited to national and international guest performances whilst fully appreciating the Staatsoper as their artistic homeland.

In addition to supporting the singers’ steady professional progress, the Staatsoper Stuttgart has for many years focused on promoting the next generation of singers: The International Opera Studio Stuttgart offers a "trainee program" for singers who have completed their studies. Striking a healthy balance between performances on the big stage and master classes, coaching and special pedagogical supervision, the young singers are encouraged to broaden and develop their voices and artistic personalities. An ideal foundation for the Staatsoper Stuttgart to also guarantee the highest level of singing in the future.
We cordially invite you to join us in discovering these young voices and singer personalities during the course of this season: Linsey Coppens from Belgium, Gerard Farreras and Laia Vallés from Spain, Ángel Macías, Alberto Robert and Jorge Ruvalcaba from Mexico, Clare Tunney from Great Britain, Natasha Te Rupe Wilson from New Zealand and Shannon Keegan from the USA.

The singers are given the opportunity to take their first formative career steps under the best conditions and under the patronage of chamber singers Catriona Smith and Diana Haller as well as in collaboration with the Stuttgart University of Music and Performing Arts. Accompany our young singers on their way! Become a personal sponsor and/or supporter of the Staatsoper Stuttgart’s International Opera Studio!

We look forward to welcoming you!
