A series of three public masterclasses in which leading figures from the world of opera work with BYO singers, coaching them on vocal and dramatic technique in a selection of arias and ensembles from the operatic repertoire.

Susan Bullock is one of the world’s most sought-after dramatic sopranos, particularly renowned for her role as Brunhilde in Wagner’s Ring cycle (including in the 2011 and 2014 Last Night of the Proms).

Edward Gardner is recognised as one of the most talented conductors of his generation and has been Music Director of English National Opera since 2007. He is also a BYO alumnus, having been Assistant Conductor for BYO’s 1998 production of Così fan tutte.

Mezzo-soprano Diana Montague and tenor David Rendall have between them a wide-ranging repertoire and a wealth of experience on international opera stages from the Royal Opera House in London to the Metropolitan Opera in New York.
