An interactive concert in which you get a behind-the-scenes look at what goes on during the Performing Opera Summer School, an intensive workshop program that takes place during the Grachtenfestival. The three teachers explain, give examples and do a warm-up with the audience!
You will also be introduced to the talented young singers of the Performing Opera Summer School, who will perform highlights of operas from all over the world.
The teachers, David Prins, Elsina Jansen (acting), Wilfred van de Peppel (physical acting) and repetiteur Marta Liébana, all have their own approach. In this way the young opera singers learn different ways of working, just as they will encounter in opera practice.
Acting and presentation are the backbone of the program. The singers train essential skills they need to be independent on stage. You can see and hear the singers of Performing Opera in various programs and at various locations during the Grachtenfestival.
