About Michigan Opera Theatre Studio
Michigan Opera Theatre Studio Artists represent some of the most exciting emerging talent in opera today. Coming to Detroit from all different areas of the country, from September to June these young opera professionals gain valuable experience through myriad performance opportunities in main stage and community productions. In March 2019, they will fill the leading roles in MOT’s production of Bernstein’s beloved operetta Candide. Throughout their residency, studio artists benefit from advanced individual training and guidance from MOT’s Director of Resident Artist Programs, American tenor, Richard Leech, and Principal Coach/Accompanist, Tessa Hartle, and hone their skills through master classes and instruction from an array of world class professionals, guest artists, and coaches.
