The Seattle Academy of Opera (formerly Seattle Academy of Baroque Opera) is a program dedicated to preparing musicians for a career in baroque opera performance founded by Stephen Stubbs.
In recognition of the need for ongoing education in the field of baroque opera for both singers and continuo players, we also offer weekend workshops during the academic year. Unlike the Accademia d'Amore, which has 40-50 participants, these events are designed for a smaller group (limited to eight singers) allowing for more in-depth work and exploring the repertoire of the cantata and motet as well as operatic scenes. The faculty of Seattle Academy of Opera are artists-in-residence at St James Cathedral.
