OPERA PRACTICE PERFECT (OPP) provides a unique practice tool that benefits classical singers, from aspiring students to working professionals. OPP accompaniments are the played piano part of the piano/vocal score of a complete opera or choral work. The tempi of the accompaniments are matched to a well-known recording of each opera thus providing the nuances of renowned singers following the baton of a world-class conductor. Practicing to an OPP accompaniment provides a valid artistic experience.
ROLES Accompaniments are provided for an entire role including duets, trios, ensembles, etc. Ample cue time is provided, allowing cues to be learned from the music. Vocal cues are not provided as they are considered unreliable. Vocal lines are not provided as OPP accompaniments are a practice tool, not a learning tool.
