We are casting a workshop preparatory to the future production of an opera to be performed in Europe and possibly world-wide. The workshop in Venice, Italy (Feb. 18-23, 2019) is held by the celebrated singer Vivica Genaux and the music director Pedro Memelsdorff and will focus on the career of the first title-role singer of colour, granddaughter of a freed slave in the French Caribbean, in the late 18th century.
Winners will be funded to cover the following expenses: enrollment fee, half board (breakfast and lunch, plus lodging in the beautiful residence of the Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice, Italy), travel to Venice, Italy (in economy class, up to 700 EUR for intercontinental flights, always to be agreed with the secretariat of the workshop).
They will be coached by the celebrated singer Vivica Genaux and the conductor Pedro Memelsdorff and at the end of the workshop they will perform a public concert (ca. 45 minutes).
After the workshop, outstanding musicians will be contacted to take part to an opera to be performed in 2020-2021.

To apply, send links to video recordings of two solo pieces belonging to Baroque or Gallant repertoires, one of which in French language (possibly uploaded on an easily accessible platform).

Deadline for application: December 16th, 2018.
