Mascarade Opera Studio

Custom WordPress Website & Plugin for Education

About the project

The Mascarade Opera Studio programme is a nine-month fully funded high-ability training programme in opera designed to support singers and répétiteurs of exceptional talent at the initial stages of their career. It includes enhanced performance skills training for opera provided by expert coaches, vocal consultants, performance specialists and invited master teachers, alongside orchestral showcases and a variety of carefully chosen performance opportunities. In anticipation of launching a new international opera school in Florence, Mascarade Opera Studio required a website that would attract prospective singer and répétiteur student and allow them to apply to the course via the website.

Project Specification

We developed a custom WordPress website with a specialised Plugin that manages student submissions. The plugin gives teaching staff the ability to review applications through the admin section of their website. The application plugin processes each student application including text, video, and images to verify identification. Through the process of applying students are given visual cues to guide the applicant through the application process. Once a student has applied they are notified of their successful submission via email. Teaching staff can change the status of the applications, marking which applicants they wish to see audition using the plugin and export the data for each audition list into a Microsoft readable Excel format for processing internally. Our digital design stands alongside a brand and symbols emblematic of Florence created by award-winning graphic design studio FourTwentySeven.
