Long Reach Opera Workshop places its focus squarely on the singer-actor. We work in an intimate, ensemble setting to develop rounded performers and we strive for excellence in everything we do. As a workshop participant, you will have the opportunity to develop your stagecraft while immersing yourself in an opera role. We create an environment that is supportive, challenging and fun. And you will experience the excitement of living in the heart of downtown Toronto, the world's most culturally diverse city.

Together, we will explore: What is the work of a singer-actor? What is it to have performer energy? How do I build a role? How do I physicalize my character's experience? How do I met the demands of depicting a character while maintaining healthy vocal production? What is it to share the stage with other performers? What is this opera about? Where does my character fit into the world of the opera?
