About dell’Arte Opera Ensemble

The company’s dual mission is to nurture emerging opera artists through rehearsal and performance opportunities, seminars, and master classes, and to attract new audiences by offering them high-quality opera presentations featuring exciting young artists at little-or no-cost. Our emphasis is on ‘learning by doing,’ backed by the philosophy that only superior craft creates great art. dell’Arte is committed to the essential building blocks of opera: great singing, great music, and great acting. Singers working with dell’Arte range from those who have just exited school to those pursuing regional careers and even to those performing on the roster of The Metropolitan Opera. Participating singers attend master classes, receive private coaching, enjoy the support of enthusiastic and talented colleagues, and collaborate with professional instrumentalists, culminating in a highly enriching performance experience. Audiences enjoy the fresh excitement of experiencing role debuts and witnessing important landmarks in each singer’s artistic process. www.dellarteopera.org
