Study Italian and sing opera in beautiful Tuscany this summer! We are still accepting applications for this exclusive new program in Arezzo, near Florence. This May 22-June 18 program will expand singers' horizons through daily Italian langauge courses (with a 3 credit hour option) diction, acting, musicology, and afternoons spent rehearsing scenes, all culminating in a final gala performance. Throughout the course of this intensive program, there is plenty of time for both practice and leisure, with weekends free for excursions. Housing, as well as three meals a day, five days a week is included in your tuition. Applications will be accepted only until all spots are filled, so apply early!
When we welcome new students to the Accademia, we are welcoming new artists. One of the reasons to come study here is that in all of Europe, Italy has some of the deepest artistic roots. Coming to Italy as an artist is about more than access or exposure to some of Europe’s greatest art – otherwise, it would be little more than a museum. Instead, it is a chance to join a culture of incredible artistic wealth and grow as part of that culture. By learning to draw upon Italy’s heritage of inventiveness, you will learn to re-invent yourself as an artist in the contemporary sense.
