Rehearsal for The Barber of Seville, 2023

Matt Cooksey directing a rehearsal of The Barber of Seville, 2023.

The Florida Grand Opera Studio supports the growth of early career opera professionals. The Studio Artists receive top-notch training, including hours of coaching with qualified professionals, and master classes with some of the best conductors, directors, and working singers in the business, to help them develop their instrument, hone their skills, and add best practices to their professional toolbox.

The investment FGO makes in these singers is significant. They receive pay and free housing in the increasingly expensive Miami housing market. We remain committed to the Studio because we believe supporting the next generation of opera professionals is vitally important.

The Studio is a benefit not only to them but to the national opera scene. And it’s all possible because of our Studio Artist Sponsors.

A donation to the Florida Grand Opera Studio Program is a vote of confidence in these gifted artists. It’s a gift not only to our present, but to the future of opera.

We hope you’ll consider supporting one of the emerging artists, the staff members who run the program, or the program as a whole with your best gift today.
