Halifax Summer Opera Festival 2023

Armide 2022

Join us for our 17th Season of supportive opera training on the East Coast of Canada!

We offer an artist-centred approach that teaches and strengthens your stage skills in the context of rehearsing and performing an entire role in an opera.

We’ll be hearing all auditions by distance this year, and the application form will remain live as long as there are roles available.
