"Una voce poco profonda": Curtain up for Trouser Roles and Heroines

Whether the voice is lyric light or heavy, whether it can master coloratura, perhaps even has dramatic potential -- in the OperAria mezzo-soprano and alto volumes, singers with a deeper voice and a special talent for the trouser role through to the heroine find everything they need for their performance. Throbbing of the heart? Yes, that's simply part of the game! Feeling nervous? No, because actually nothing can go wrong with OperAria. The best vocal coach for auditions and current theatre practice. Only the voice needs to do its bit. Toi, toi, toi!

"Our goal is to give the user a modern-day, systematically structured vocal coach who satisfies the demands of present-day theater practice. At long last a consistent repertoire and a well-ordered conflation of respective audition arias for all vocal genres." - Peter Anton Ling and Marina Sandel, editors
