Concept of Ms. Beranova's opera masterclass requires participation throughout the week and throughout the entire teaching. It is a comprehensive approach leading operatic technique and interpretation, the day starts with a common physical and vocal warm-up, the presence of the teaching of the whole group of singers brings a deeper understanding and the ability to realize not only itself but also listening to colleagues. Likewise, the final concert performance is a mandatory part of the course.

Piano accompaniment: Marta Vašková
