The Masters programme, delivered in association with the Royal Opera House, was devised to provide aspiring composers and writers time to focus on how new opera is created, developed and performed.
Those participating in the programme will write and compose music for chamber operas to be performed by those undertaking singing degrees at the School and staged with the support of the institution's award-winning Opera and Technical Theatre departments.
Students receive mentoring and one-to-one tuition from a member of the School’s world-class composition department led by Head of Composition, Professor Julian Philips, and work closely with the School’s Writer-in-Residence, Stephen Plaice.
They'll also spend time at the Royal Opera House to observe production rehearsals and receive guidance from Associate Director of The Royal Opera, John Fulljames.
Applications for the September 2016 entry of the MA in Opera Making and Writing close on 28 March 2016. Full details are available on the Guildhall Schools's website or by contacting Antoine.Kaiserman@gsmd.ac.uk.
