APPLICATION IS OPEN FOR GIANNI SCHICCHI / SELECTED PUCCINI OPERA SCENES ROLES!
This Summer will be special because 2024 is the 100th anniversery of Puccini’ death and we decided to link the whole Spring and Summer plans to his music.
Our conductors are going to select scenes from Puccini’s operas for the live performances but also we would like to keep the possibility of our applicants open to apply in groups with exact secenes, maybe one of them wins our heart and will be shown to the audience in June-July. Also the plan is to perform Gianni Schicchi.
By the end of January as the latest we announce all the selected scenes so please follow our Opera Studio Sopron facebook page.
Also, feel free to contact us with scene recommendations.
We organize 8 concerts for the young singers of which 6 will be at the Liszt Center and announced as the Opera & Champagne concerts which became a tradition by now. The 7th and 8th concerts will be at the Cave Theater Dohnanyi Hall with the PUCCINI 2024 PROGRAM mentioned above.
