Opera

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter

Opera at Banff Centre is a performance-based, collaborative training experience for emerging opera professionals that truly challenges the conventions of opera performance, production, and design. The focus is to develop young opera professionals with the skills and experience to take them to the next level of their careers and beyond.

The Opera in the 21st Century program is made possible through the generous support of the David Spencer Endowment Encouragement Fund.


Opera in the 21st Century brings to life a vision of how our field can and should look: collaborative, adventurous, and thrilling. My time at Banff Centre clarified my artistic vision and provided me with a clear path forward in my career aspirations.

Austin Lewellen, Opera in the 21st Century, 2019
