About Russian Opera Workshop

Russian Opera Workshop is a privately operated, independent summer training program for aspiring and professional opera singers. Selected by a competitive audition process, participating artists have come from across the United States, Canada, Mexico, China, and Europe.

The program was founded in 2011 by Ghenady Meirson, a long-time faculty member at both the Academy of Vocal Arts and Curtis Institute of Music. Centered on one Russian opera per session, each workshop session offers an intensive one-month long Russian language and vocal training program followed by free public performances.
