In 2019 we created Opera Idaho’s Rising Stars program. It is a tuition-based, weekly program designed as an opera training and college preparatory program for high school singers.

Rising Stars students will:

  • Learn to prepare for college auditions
  • Perform opera scenes
  • Meet and speak with opera professionals
  • Learn stage movement
  • Learn what happens backstage at the opera
  • Receive solo coachings

Tuition is $320. Need-based scholarships available!

Auditions TBA.

Rehearsals are on Tuesdays from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm at the Opera Idaho Studio, 513 South 8th Street, Boise.

To audition: Please prepare one piece from your Solo Festival repertoire list, preferably memorized. A form will be sent to you prior to the audition; please bring the completed form to your scheduled audition. An accompanist will be provided.

Auditions will be held at:

Opera Idaho Studio
