Stockholm University of the Arts (Uniarts) provides education and conducts research in the fields of circus, dance, film, media, opera and performing arts. With our unique composition of education and artistic research, we want to create new opportunities for societal development and knowledge of tomorrow.
At Uniarts you will find an attractive study and work environment, in which we strive to achieve broad recruitment of students and employees. With the flourishing environment for artistic research, we have unique opportunities of deepening the study programmes and creating collaborative transdisciplinary projects. Together we create dynamic meeting places for independent artists, educators and researchers in dialogue with society around us, both nationally and internationally.
The Department of Opera (University College of Opera)
Our education builds on a long, solid tradition with focus on all the different parts of Opera as an art form: music, stage performance, movement, language and theory. At the same time, we want to expand opera as an art form and challenge our present day with reflection on artistic content and develop new models for creating opera.
The education we provide includes musical, musical-dramatic, theoretical and reflective elements and takes place in individual and group lessons, stage interpretation projects, seminars and lectures. Opera as a cross-disciplinary subject plays a part in valuable collaborations at Stockholm University of the Arts. Our research is characterised by close proximity to the practical artistic specialisation within the Opera subject.
We offer study programmes for singers at first-cycle and second-cycle levels. The college has about 20 teachers, 40 students and 3 doctoral students
