FLO 1. A room with a view on the Italian Belcanto

Period of the EOA module in 2023-2024:

  • 01 February 2024 – 04 May 2024

Meet the Italian Belcanto tradition in the town that hosted the first operatic creation. An all-Italian experience on the operatic repertoire from Baroque to Verdi and Puccini.

  2. A group of 3-4 arias in Italian, including recitativos and/or cabalettas if present and full scenes and ensembles from operas

Participants:

All voice types

Specialty of this module in comparison with other courses in Europe

We give the participants the possibility to develop their skills in the Italian language and diction in a very practical approach. We will concentrate on interpretation and performance of the most important Italian belcanto styles, from the early baroque “recitar-cantando”, the classic recitativo secco, accompagnato and virtuoso arias, to the Romantic “solita scena” (scena, aria and cabaletta) until the declamatory style of the late XIX composers (Verismo), depending on each singers vocal and musical needs. Our teachers and coaches have a long experience in the tuition of international students, as in our Vocal studies Faculty more than 50% of singers are from all the continents. Being in Firenze (Dante’s home town) allows you to absorb the good “reference” Italian diction directly from the people you will meet in the street, as the Florentine language is the basis of the modern Italian language.

Additionally, a production on stage with full scenes and costumes (with piano and small chamber group accompaniment) of DONIZETTI’s L’elisir d’amore at Teatro Niccolini (Firenze), at the end of March 2024, with the participation of the EOA students as either soloist or choir (singers).
