Rose Bruford College of Theatre & Performance

Course Introduction

Started in 1997, our exciting Opera Studies programme is unique in the world being the only online learning undergraduate programme focusing on opera as a performance art delving into all the constituent parts of this amazing and versatile art form.

Alongside main composers and historic periods you will be studying all about the libretto, the singer, the orchestra and conductor, the director, Shakespeare in opera, women in opera and much more. It is an ideal complement to vocal studies and equips directors and singers alike to fully appreciate the material they work with. We have a new Level 4 practical module run in conjunction with Associated Studios enabling you to study vocal technique as well as acting, movement and repertoire.​
