The International Opera Studio IOS was established in 1961 under the patronage of the Friends of Zurich Opera, and has since then become one of the most important educational institutions for budding young opera singers.
Every year, young singers from all over the world are given the opportunity to earn their artistic spurs under competent instruction.
The IOS thus represents an important transitional phase between completing their training as singers and entering the professional world.
Besides receiving vocal training, stagecraft and master classes from prominent singers, important directors and conductors, students have the opportunity to take on smaller and larger roles on the Opera House’s main stage.
