Academy of Vocal Arts

Music Theatre Downtown

The Academy of Vocal Arts provides tuition-free vocal and opera training of the highest quality, and financial support during training, to exceptionally talented and committed young singers who have the potential for international stature, and to present them in professional performances that are accessible to a wide community. Each year, AVA resident artists are presented in four or five fully-staged opera productions accompanied by orchestra. Resident artists are cast in leading roles that they will in all likelihood continue to perform for the rest of their careers.
