Dr. Michela Bertagnolli Masterclass - November 2012


I had such a wonderful time and made so many new friends when I attended Dr. Michela Bertagnolli's series of masterclasses in KL back in July 2012. Since the last series of courses received such overwhelming response, the team is staging another series again in November 2012! You can choose to take individual lessons or group classes, and new to this series is a La Boheme course (where you get to pick a role from the opera to work on) and children's opera choir. The series of courses will end with a recital/concert where participants will get to present what they have learnt in full costume, hair and make-up, including scenes from La Boheme. Here's more information:
