Living Opera provides me a community, a place where I feel free to ask questions I didn’t dare to ask as a student at the Conservatoire de Paris. I feel surrounded by the good energy and the benevolence of Soula and Norman and the entire community. Here we stop pretending that we have to succeed on our own! We learn from one another not only how to be a better artist and person, but more respectful of our instrument and personality. We also learn how to deal with practical aspects of this job we rarely talk about in school: how do I get an agent, how do I deal with my image as a singer… And thanks to their great experience on stage and their knowledge of the voice, Soula and Norman can both give us vocal and stage tips that are always useful as we are working on a specific point. Thank you for the dedication, I feel less lost and alone as I did at the beginning my career!
