DISCOVERING DONIZETTI at CCM
July 28 – August 9, 2014
Join us for a unique course, focusing exclusively on the challenging craft of opera. Up to 12 conductors and pianists, along with a carefully selected cast, will be invited to participate in this one-of-a-kind experience while in residence at University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music.
Working with an internationally renowned faculty, led by Mark Gibson, Director of Orchestral Studies at CCM, conductors and pianists will have daily Italian instruction, text and style sessions and conducting and coaching master classes. Students will also participate in staging rehearsals, work with singers and lead orchestra rehearsals. Advanced opera singers will have the opportunity to learn a role in its entirety, and work with renowned faculty and industry professionals, along with daily Italian classes and coachings. The course culminates in a semi-staged performance, with orchestra, of L’Elisir d’Amore.
