- 1st of March to 15th of July 2023
Open for: 1-4 vocal students (Soprano, Mezzo, Tenor, Baritone, Bass)
The aim of the Module is for students to work on performing a role and learn to co-operate with conductors, directors and other professional groups through the performances and participation on a fully staged opera.
The Opera for this year is still in negotiation with the National Theatre of Porto: TNSJ and it will be fully announced soon.
EOA students will participate in this fully staged work and will receive vocal coaching and acting to prepare the specific roles of this production. It will make the EOA student aware of the full team work and cooperation that an opera production requires, and it will make the singer aware of the interaction of all the EOA Modules 2021-2022, and how different areas are involved in an opera presentation (implementation of the set design, costumes, light, production, staging, orchestra, etc.)
