SWAP'ra has developed a brand new retreat for postnatal singers in the process of returning to their singing careers after a period of maternity leave. Generously supported by Glyndebourne, the 4-day residential course will comprise:

  • post-natal rehabilitative pilates sessions;

  • masterclasses;

  • performance psychology sessions;

  • Q&A discussions with other opera mothers;

  • a filmed recording of 2-3 audition arias for each singer to help them to promote themselves as they return to their careers.

These tools and resources are essential for re-building stamina and confidence after a time away from

performing but are prohibitively expensive for most freelance artists. The challenge of re-entering the

industry after a period of absence has been significantly exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic.

Application details will be released soon.  For more information, email us at info@swap-ra.org
