Baritone Michael Meraw has performed with companies across North America (including: Pacific Opera Victoria, the Victoria Symphony Orchestra, the Banff Centre, Edmonton Opera, the Richard Eaton Singers, Symphony Regina, the National Arts Centre, the Thirteen Strings, Opéra Atelier, Opera in Concert, Montreal Opera, Seattle Opera, Virginia Opera, and the Boston Symphony Orchestra), in repertoire ranging from Monteverdi and Handel, to Webern and Szymanowski. Not only has Meraw garnered critical acclaim in the standard repertoire, winning praise for his Figaro in Rossini's Barber of Seville and Orff's Carmina Burana, but he has also brought lesser-known works to new audiences through his incisive portrayals of such roles as King Roger by Szymanowski ("Meraw did well as Roger, with nervy urgency and gripping delivery of his increasingly anguished lines..." — Geoff Chapman, The Toronto Star) and Sir John A. MacDonald in Somers's Louis Riel ("Dealing with a vocal part that veers from sprechgesang to dramatic declamation, baritone Michael Meraw showed great vocal cut and thrust, in addition to contributing a striking stage presence." — Richard Turp, Opera Canada). Mr. Meraw has performed many of the standard baritone parts in oratorio including Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Orff’s Carmina Burana, Handel’s Messiah, Judas Maccabeas, Joshua and Israel in Egypt, and the Requiem’s of Brahms and Faure. A regular recitalist, his repertoire spans the baritone repertoire in English, French, German, Italian and Russian.
As well as his regular voice studio at New England Conservatory and his responsibilities as the Artistic Director of NEC’s Undergraduate Opera Studio, Mr. Meraw has become a regular Master clinician and adjudicator at several festivals in China, and will be joining the faculty of AIMS in Graz this summer. Many of his students have gone onto success, winning positions in young artist programs and artist contracts in the United States, Canada and Europe. Michael’s students can include La Scala, the Chatelet, L’Opera Comique in Paris, Minnesota Opera, St. Louis Opera, Montreal Opera, BBC Proms, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Montreal Symphony Orchestra among their recent credits.

As the great Giuseppe di Stefano already recognized during Ms. Makarina`s student years at the Mannes School of Music – bel canto repertoire became her trademark and the space in which she has distinctively delivered some of her signature roles and have opened her doors to some of the greatest stages worldwide.Less than a year after winning the Metropolitan Opera Auditions, Ms. Makarina has made her stage debut in New York City opera in the title role of Lucia di Lammermoor. These successful performances marked the beginning of her long and fruitful worldwide career, with her base in New York City, where she sang at The Metropolitan Opera for 18 seasons and was regular on other stages of the city - the New York City Opera, Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall and where she now has her own studio on Manhattan, where she passionately shares her knowledge with the new generations of opera singers.
Ms. Makarina`s portfolio includes impressive number of title and leading roles in some of the most beloved and performed operas of the Italian and French repertoire – Verdi`s Violetta, Gilda and Desdemona; Donizetti's Lucia Ashton, Adina, Lucrezia Borgia and Anna Bolena; Bellini`s Amina, Elvira, Norma and Imogene; Puccini`s Mimì and Liù; Rossini`s Albina; Massnet`s Manon and Thaïs, Mayerbeer`s Marguerite de Valois, Halevy`s Eudoxie, Bizet`s Micaela, Offenbach`s Olympia and Antonia. She has also made highly acclaimed performances of Mozart`s heroines (Pamina, Vittelia, Donna Elvira, Donna Anna, Ilia, Elletra, Konstanze), R.Korsakov`s Marfa (with Olga Borodina) and Glinka`s Lyudmila; and some of the most demanding roles of contemporary repertoire, written for coloratura soprano: Stravinsky's The Nightingale, Strauss`s Zerbinetta and Italian singer, Ravel`s The Fire and Respighi`s Princess.
Outside New York, she performed on stages all over the world, including the Canadian Opera, Teatro Liceu in Barcelona, Las Palmas Opera, Opera di Roma, Teatro Regio in Rome, Opera La Coruna, Mariinsky Theater, Teatro de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, Kirov Opera, National Theater in Prague, Slovak National Opera, Opera Pacific, Palm Beach Opera and Warsaw’s Grand Theater.Ms. Makarina performed in highly acclaimed festivals among which are the Spoleto festival, the Cesky Krumlov Festival with the Brno Philharmonic that was televised in Eurovision, Macau Festival, Rome’s Euro Festival Mediterraneo where she sang a concert of bel canto arias and scenes with Eve Queler and the Malta Symphony at the site of Hadrian’s Villa which was telecast in Italy, and Bard Festival.
Ms. Makarina made her stage debut singing Mozart’s C minor mass with Yehudi Menuhin. She has since performed with many top conductors such as James Levine, Valery Gergiev, Zubin Mehta, Nello Santi and Bruno Campanella. Her concert appearances include numerous recitals opera houses and concert halls around the world and performances of soprano solo parts in Verdi`s Requiem, Orf`s Carmina Burana and Catuli Carmina, Mahler’s 2nd and 4th Symphony, Mozart`s Exsultate Jubilate and Coronation mass, Bach`s Cantata 51 for soprano solo, Mendelsons` Elias, Handle`s Messiah, List`s Missa Solemnis and Brahms` German Requiem. She sang the world premiere of Puccini Songs, a new ballet by choreographer, Nilas Martins based on nine songs by Puccini and repeated this work with Ballet San Jose.
Ms. Makarina has recorded three solo albums with Romeo Records: Italian Opera Arias, Olga Makarina Sings Liszt, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, and Mozart: Arias; Exsultate, Jubilate. Her performances in Rossini`s La donna dell lago and R. Strauss`s Capriccio from The Met are available as on demand HD videos.
Aside from giving private lessons in her studio on on Manhattan, Ms. Makarina travels all over the world to give master classes. She has taught in Israel, Russia, New York and Japan, and is a Management Board Member at The Elena Obraztsova International Academy of Music in St. Petersburg.
A graduate of the Mannes School of Music, Ms Makarina also has her Masters in piano and voice from the St Petersburg Conservatory, where she also studied Choral conducting, all of which gave her thorough and multi angled perspective on opera and classical music in general, that is incorporated in the way she perceives music and teaches it. She has won a number of important prizes and awards including the Metropolitan Opera Auditions, the Musicians Emergency Fund and the Liederkranz Competition.
Throughout her career she had fantastic mentors in the opera legends such as Marylin Horne and Renata Scotto (with whom she prepared the most of her signature bel canto roles) and the conductor Henry Lewis, that she often talks about as one of the most important figures in forming her artistic personality and the way she thinks about music.
All of this collected knowledge, Ms. Makarina aims to transfer to her students in a holistic manner
- knowledge about singing technique (that she considers to be her legacy), traditions, styles, languages, and mindset and etiquette of being a an musician, opera singer and scholar, combined with personal experiences and on and offstage tips and tricks she collected throughout the career. Her approach is individual and tailored to each student's current level and needs, with a longtime goal to make each singer self-aware and independant when it comes to using their own instrument.

Stephen Mould is a Senior Lecturer in Conducting, Opera Studies and Repetiteurship at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, and Artistic Director of the Conservatorium Opera.
He studied at the Sydney Conservatorium (B Mus, Grad Dip, Repetiteur) and Royal Academy of Music, London before commencing a career as repetiteur, musical assistant and conductor in opera houses in Germany, Belgium, London, USA, Asia and Australia. He was Assistant to the Music Director of Oper Frankfurt (1993-6), returning to Australia in 1996 where he held a number of key positions at Opera Australia, as conductor, musical assistant, and Head Of Music (2004 -8). He has conducted most state orchestras in Australia along with the major orchestras in New Zealand, been engaged by the Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane Festivals as well as working for most of the State opera companies in Australia, including State Opera of South Australia, assisting on both Wagner Ring Cycles, Parsifal and retaining an association with that company as conductor. He joined the faculty at Sydney University in 2009, and completed his dissertation, Curating Opera in 2016.
His research activities centre upon opera and conducting, with a focus from the mid-eighteenth century until the present day. Interests include the history of opera and the rise of the conductor, along with performance practice-based research across both areas; the developing role of the conductor from the late nineteenth century; Richard Wagner; Mozart reception; Gustav Mahler as conductor and opera practitioner; the impact of historically aware performance practice upon the conducting profession; aspects of authenticity, Werktreue and Retuschen; the historical background to the conducted repertoire are all central areas of teaching and research. His teaching of conducting incorporates the study of the marked scores of iconic conductors of the past. The collection and study of such material forms the core of his current research.
His book, Curating Opera is awaiting publication, and he is currently at work on his next, Reading Conductors. He has also published in the area of the visual arts, including a monograph on the lives of Dušan and Voitre Marek, two émigré surrealist artists who migrated to Australia in the wake of WW2. This area of study is an ongoing field of study for Dr Mould.
Recent and current HDR students have worked on Retuschen in Beethoven’s 9th Symphony; The role of ambiguity in Britten’s The Turn of the Screw; The future role for opera in defining new cultural contexts; and the developing role of the conductor in nineteenth century Italy.
