Direct message If you're a developing theatre director with a curiosity about opera, we want to hear from you. On Tuesday 11 December 2018, from 10am to 8pm, The Royal Opera, in partnership with the Young Vic, will be holding a one-day course at the Royal Opera House which will give you an insight into the world of opera directing, and an understanding of the skills and techniques required to make it a career. Participants will observe professional directors and singers investigating scenes from different operas, have the chance to talk to leading figures from the sector and attend a performance at the Royal Opera House.
