The programme covers two academic years, which run from the beginning of October until the end of June.
The IOA educational programme is structured around four subject pillars, each covering a set of courses: (1) Interpretation and Technique; (2) Acting and Movement; (3) Opera Theory; and (4) Practice.
- During the programme, the IOA organises also several projects and productions, accompanied on piano or with orchestra.
- During the second academic year, all students participate in minimum one fully-staged opera production with orchestra. Further, students can obtain internships with one of the IOA’s professional partners. Finally, students participate in several masterclasses every year.
