Course No. 3148
Solo Study Course
Russian language coach to the Royal Opera House, Alexandre Naoumenko, will help you overcome the common problems of singing in Russian. With a vast number of beautiful songs and arias in Russian opera and vocal repertoire, this course opens up a huge range of wonderful repertoire you might not have found unapproachable until now.
Participants are invited to bring 2 pieces by any composer and/or any song in the Russian repertoire. You will go through the pieces individually with Alexandre so everybody will benefit from a deeper understanding of the essence of the Russian language and interpreting the music!
