Masterclass with Nelly Miricioiu – Sat 19th Sep 2pm

We are proud and lucky to announce that the internationally renowned artist, Nelly Miricioiu, has kindly offered to hold a Masterclass as a lead up to the Clapham Opera Festival on

Saturday 19th September 2pm

After a wonderful meeting with the Festival founder Marie Soulier, Signora Miricioiu offered to run a Masterclass in front of a small audience (70 people).

As Signora Miricioiu stated:

“I want to pass my legacy to the future generation, and the idea of a young festival is brilliant”

A few lucky singers will be coached by the great Diva on Saturday 19th September at 2pm. Doors will open at 13:20. It will be a rare chance to see one of the greats in action.

You will discover how a sparkling career on the stages of La Scala, the Met and Royal Opera House opposite the likes of Jose Carreras, Placido Domingo and Roberto Alanya, has been maintained through hard work, passion and an ability to commit to the music fully with mind, body and soul.

The three singers will be appearing at the Festival, so Festival goers will also be able to witness first hand their development as artists.

We do advise to book early, as this event will sell out.
