Antonia Couling is sought out as an authoritative voice in opera and singing career development, and works with individuals as well as for several training programmes.
Her workshops in MEDIA TRAINING FOR PERFORMERS have become regular events at several institutions, including the Royal Opera House, where she regularly trains the performers on their Young Artist Programme every year.
Other clients include the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama and Co-Opera Co., among others. Antonia was very proud to be invited to Dublin to run Irish Youth Opera's inaugural training workshop 2013.
For more than 20 years, including over 15 years in her dual role as Editor of THE SINGER magazine and Deputy Editor of OPERA NOW, Antonia Couling has travelled the world, reporting on the running of opera houses, listening to singers and watching careers and companies develop.
Dialogues with many of the world's top performers and administrators on every aspect of the opera business, over many years, have given her an expert insight into what makes for a successful business and career strategy within the classical music world.
This has led to a successful portfolio career of her own, consulting on numerous and varying elements of singing career development, from performance to promotion and management.
Antonia is also Director of Communications
for opera training company Co-Opera Co.
