The site is managed by me, Zenaida des Aubris. What gives me the confidence that I can help you? I have over 30 years experience in the field of opera and classical music covering most aspects of working behind the scenes – from working in artistic administration (San Francisco Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Palau de les Arts Valencia), managing two superstar artists (the opera stage director Jean-Pierre Ponnelle and the conductor Lorin Maazel), running a boutique agency for opera singers, managing several major productions such as the legendary Turandot in the Forbidden City in China and the Rachlin and Friends Festival in Croatia, including all aspects of production, fundraising, marketing and sales campaigns.

After giving seminars to the finalists of the 2017 “Neue Stimmen” Competition, masterclasses in the United States, Estonia and elsewhere, the logical next step was to establish Opera Career Coach online and make my expertise and tools available to a much broader audience.

My team and I are here to give you - the young opera singer wanting to kickstart a successful career - the most objective advice and help with setting up your own and unique professional strategy in order to achieve your goals.
