Barefoot Opera is all about training – on many levels and in many situations.

If you are a young singer trying to get into the profession or into postgraduate courses, Barefoot Opera has several options for you.  Equally, we can be found workshopping with amateur choirs and drama groups, as well as in schools and a range of community engagements.

Barefoot Opera: Handel Workshop


2019 Workshops

Monthly Workshops

Monthly workshops, 6pm – 9:30pm at Barefoot Studio in Brockley London.

I offer one MONDAY evening a month to open singing workshops. It is a huge benefit to get up and sing for others, enabling singers to confirm and strengthen and clarify technical and performance goals – and it is great to share the process!

Barefoot Opera Young Artists Tour is an advanced training programme well-known for its strong production values and demanding, genuinely educational rehearsal structure. This year’s tour will be a new production of THE BARBER OF SEVILLE.

Singers and instrumentalists work as an ensemble team. The opera is fully staged and costumed, and sung in Italian. Musical direction is by Lesley-Anne Sammons and staging is by Jenny Miller, founder of Barefoot Opera. To see their biographies click on their names on our Team page.

This is a 10 day non-residential course for advanced singers working to develop their solo careers in the profession.
