The opera training program at NEC is one of the country’s best for young opera singers, who come from all over the world to study. Numerous NEC singers have gone on to sing in major opera houses around the world, including NYC’s Metropolitan Opera and London’s Royal Opera at Covent Garden. Under the leadership of director Joshua Major, the program offers vigorous and intensive training in the areas of singing, acting, dance, stage combat, diction, and stage deportment. Students work closely with vocal coaches and stage directors as they hone their craft and prepare for the ultra-competitive career of an opera singer.
