The RCM International Opera School

The RCM International Opera School is one of the world’s leading training centres for opera. It offers operatic training at the highest level for performers from around the globe, and many of the world’s leading singers have passed through our doors.

We present three fully-staged operatic productions a year, including one in collaboration with the London Handel Festival, which are attended by international press and agents. Many of our students move straight into young artist schemes at the world’s leading opera houses, or directly into fully fledged careers.

Members of the RCM International Opera School also have the opportunity to participate in workshops with significant members of the opera world. Recent workshops have involved baritone Alessandro Corbelli, Director of Opera at the Royal Opera House Kasper Holten, Baden State Theatre’s Mikhail Fikhtengoltz, and ENO’s Sophie Joyce and John McMurray.
