Vocal and Drama Studies


Malmö Opera Academy


The Master of Fine Arts in Vocal and Drama Studies at Malmö Academy of Music is offered in close collaboration with Malmö Opera. The two-year programme is meant for singers with a high artistic level and ability, and aims to prepare you for a professional career as a opera singer.

The Master's programme in Vocal and Drama Studies gives you the opportunity to develop musically and dramatically among musicians, singers and conductors in an opera house – a unique education in Sweden at the highest artistic level.

In parallel with vocal studies, interpretation, music drama, movement and more, you participate in Malmö Opera's activities. This gives you an unrivalled opportunity to continuously gain insight and learn more about a singer's various tasks and professional opportunities at a real working place.

After completing the programme, you shall have received musical education at a high level as well as extensive practical experience of stage productions. You shall also have gained in-depth insights about the work at a major opera house in addition to complete role studies and a rehearsal repertoire in your vocal range. In other words, you shall be ready for a professional life as an opera singer on an international market.

Since Malmö Academy of Music is part of Lund University, there is also the strength in having a close connection to the Faculty of Fine Arts, which includes Malmö Theater Academy and Malmö Academy of Fine Arts, as well as Inter Arts Center. This opens up for exciting joint projects and collaboration opportunities.
