Bootcamp for dramatic voices: Wagner/Strauss with Vera Wenkert
Success with individual artistry and authentic craft
Your success as a singer is guaranteed if you sing with a healthy and complete “polished” vocal and musical interpretation and authentic stage craft. We concentrate on young dramatic singers and professional singers in the dramatic field. Nowadays, a singer has not only to be convincing technically and vocally, but also have a compelling stage presence. In this master class we work on role interpretation, vocal technique, preparation for a professional career and the development of your own artistic personality.
In this boot camp, 7 dramatic singers have the possibility to work on all of the requirements for a successful audition or to “polish” extracts of a role with our knowledge of music and vocal technique and dramaturgical context. We support you with the exclusive skills and expertise, joy, mindfulness and passion that come from our many years of stage experience.
