Voice & Opera

Led by an exceptional faculty committed to the educational development of the next generation of world-class opera singers, Juilliard’s Marcus Institute for Vocal Arts prepares students for the challenges and rewards of professional singing careers. The ever-evolving opera profession requires today’s singers to sing, act, dance, analyze text, take on roles with significant physical demands, interact with colleagues from around the world, and work with designers and directors with unconventional design concepts. Our curriculum addresses the needs of today’s opera singer, with classes emphasizing dramatic skills, specialized residencies with industry leaders, and numerous performance opportunities to ensure that our students are prepared to success in today’s professional arena.

The curriculum is intense, combining classroom experiences with performance opportunities at every level and workshop projects emphasizing process over product. Within each program, we challenge our students to become mature and informed artists, capable of making their own artistic and professional decisions while still working as a member of a larger community.

Our programs are intentionally designed to give our students as many relevant experiences as possible so that they leave Juilliard fully equipped to enter the professional world.

Singers are eligible for admission to the following degree programs:
