About us

In 2011, internationally acclaimed Wagnerian soprano Lisa Gasteen AO established the Lisa Gasteen National Opera School to provide elite opera coaching.

The School is among one of the finest coaching programs in the world and offers its singers important national and international contacts. It has established a core program that reflects Lisa Gasteen’s holistic approach that combines singer and repetiteur training, language study, practical musicianship and performance experience.

The coaching period includes over 20 individual coaching sessions, workshops, language instructions and public performances.

"Singers are expected to arrive having accurately memorised their parts. Then the real work begins."
