Britten Pears Arts



Antonio Pappano & Pamela Bullock - course directors

Julia Faulkner - voice teacher

Gweneth Ann Rand - vocal coach


Music Director of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Antonio Pappano is one of today’s most sought-after conductors, who, as a pianist, also partners singers such as Joyce DiDonato, Gerald Finley, Nina Stemme, Placido Domingo, Anna Netrebko and Jonas Kaufmann. For this course he joins forces with acclaimed vocal coach Pamela Bullock to explore operatic repertoire in-depth with singers and répétiteurs. 


We are delighted that phenomenal voice teacher Julia Faulkner joins us again to support the singers in 1:1 voice lessons throughout the course. Her list of students reads like the who’s who of today’s leading opera houses and the impact of her supportive and thoughtful teaching is sensational. This course will also include masterclasses and tuition from the internationally renowned soprano Gweneth-Ann Rand. Widely known for her opera performances, highlights in the current season include recitals at Wigmore Hall, Oxford Lieder and the Howard Assembly Room; Judit Bluebeard’s Castle for Theatre of Sound; 4.48 Psychosis at the Philharmonie de Paris with Ensemble intercontemporain; and the world premiere of The Blue Woman at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden. 


This course will comprise in a number of public masterclasses alongside private tuition, group sessions from industry professionals and a course recital at the end of the week.


For this course we accept applications from singers (any voice type) and pianists who consider themselves emerging répétiteurs. Both members of a vocal & piano duo should make separate applications. Applications will be reviewed individually but there will be a space to indicate your duo partner if applicable. 


You can apply directly on Britten Pears Arts website.
