Distinguished Faculty


Program Highlights:


Staged opera scenes, aria recitals, and other concerts provide abundant performance opportunities for vocalists to choose from - in addition to the main opera production.


Vocalists of all levels will benefit from an array of private lessons, master classes and coachings, plus voice and diction training - with emphasis on the individual singer’s needs and interests. Coaches and teachers also devote significant personal attention to preparing each singer for performances.


As part of our choral tour, Paul Leavitt  will lead the Italian Choral Premiere of his Requiem. Soloists will be selected from Vocal Program participants.



Opera Workshop:


  • Private instruction & coachings 

  • Classes in:

    • Bel Canto Traditions (Vocal & Musical)

    • Aria Interpretation

    • Italian Diction

    • Movement (combined methods)

Musical Theater:


Due to popular demand on both sides of the Atlantic,  we enjoy bringing to the Italian stage the exuberance and passion of American musical theater so appreciated by European audiences in a special concert, A Night on Broadway.


Singers with a commitment to this rich American cultural tradition will relish the chance to present familiar works to an international audience thrilled with the rare opportunity to experience…the beloved music of Broadway!

Evenings are devoted to performances, convivial dinners and post-concert festivities.  A special 25th Anniversary Gala Celebration will culminate the 2020 Vocal Program.
