This Opera Workshop Group was created with the ambition of scenically training the singer, developing all the areas needed: voice technique, performance, repertoire and mise-en-scène.

This cross-disciplinary approach has allows voice students to get closer to real staged performance through staging various operas, operettas and zarzuelas (Spanish Lyrical Genre).


Professor of Drama and Staging Antonio Díaz Zamora collaborated with the Group on its ealy days, complementing the training provided by María Ángeles Triana (Voice) and Javier San Miguel (Repertoire). Then, with the new LOGSE Curriculum in 2000, Óscar Martínez Villa (Lyric Staging) joined the teaching team.
