International Opera Studio

Supported by patrons and friends of Zurich Opera

The International Opera Studio (IOS) has already been in existence since 1961. It was founded under the patronage of the Friends of Zurich Opera, and since then has become one of the most important training centres for budding opera singers. Every year, young singers from all over the world are given the opportunity, under competent direction, to earn their first professional stripes. The IOS is thus an important transitional phase for singers between completing their training and entering the professional world. Besides training in vocal technique and dramatic structure as well as master classes with acclaimed singers, important directors and conductor, students have the opportunity to sing minor and even substantial roles on the main stage.
