ON Academy

The Opera Naples Academy offers a unique opportunity for exceptional singers to immerse in a ten-day program that provides individual vocal instruction and coaching from master teachers. Singers receive private voice lessons as well as participate in various masterclasses presented by the teachers and other faculty including Sherrill Milnes and Ramón Tebar. Each session concludes with a public concert in which all participants perform.


It was simply the best operatic program I have ever attended. I felt like the teachers and coaches really cared about my development and pushed me to be better. Everyone in the program improved. It was truly an empowering experience.

The Opera Naples Academy allowed me the opportunity to work with a world-class faculty, sing with exceptional singers from all over the world, and develop my artistry at the highest possible level.

Each day I received individual attention from extremely effective faculty. I could not believe how much my peers and I improved in such a short time. This is the best value and the best results for 10 days that I have ever experienced.
