Description

Advertisement

This course provides extensive training relevant to the requirements and demands of professional opera companies, addressing important employability issues that will become increasingly important in the coming decade. You will receive one-to-one singing lessons and coaching, specialist language tuition and fully integrated classes in stagecraft, including movement and dance. Through a professional operatic process, the course supports the development of your understanding, imagination and powers of expression. In addition to a significant role in at least one fully-staged opera production, you will work with professional repetiteurs and directors over two years in the preparation of opera scenes presentations, which will typically include baroque and contemporary works as well as standard repertoire. The programme also provides intensive training in audition technique, with input from prominent staff members and artists from opera companies including Welsh National Opera.
Several graduates of RWCMD have gone on to have successful careers in opera, both at home and abroad including Glyndebourne, Garsington, Grange Park Opera, Clonter Opera, Opera in Northern Ireland as well as at Welsh National Opera itself.

Requirements

Typical minimum entry requirements include an upper second class degree in music with considerable practical experience.

Candidates who have a degree but not in music need to have significant experience within the field.

English Language Requirements

IELTS band: 6
TOEFL paper-based test score : 550
TOEFL iBT® test: 80

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
