I Colori dell'opera means the Colors of Opera. As the Opera community grows and begins to reach out to newer and younger patrons, we believe that if opera is to remain relevant and capture the hearts of our supporters, we need the opera community to reflect the rich cultures that make up our country.
I Colori dell'opera is an opera company comprised of Houston based professional opera singers in various stages of their career as emerging artists and/or vocal technique instructors. Our purpose is to increase representation of all singers, mainly minorities of the opera community, and to provide more opportunities to perform and connect in our city.
In our outreach, we want to provide a starting point for students in under-supported programs and for students who want to gain valuable stage experience while receiving instruction in vocal techniques. We want to make classical music and opera accessible to every student, especially those who feel that they may not have a pathway in the classical music field to be provided through the Houston Vocal Techniques and Scenes Summer Institute (HVSS Institute).
