July 26 to August 27
Join us for our 12th season! Hear the best emerging professional voices from across Canada in the beauty of the Haliburton Highlands, only 2 1/2 hours northeast of the GTA. Established in 2007 by internationally-acclaimed Canadian tenor Richard Margison and Canadian stage director/violist Valerie Kuinka, Highlands Opera Studio is an advanced intensive professional training and networking program for emerging opera professionals. Chosen from 150+ applicants from across Canada and into the States, the 2018 participants can be heard in public masterclasses, multiple concerts, community events, and three fully-staged operas: La Bohème, and a double-bill of comic Canadian operas, The Glove and The Troublemaker.
