Twelve young artists in Trieste for Mozart's Don Giovanni
The initiative was brought to life by OperUs Academy, an organisation born to cultivate and support classical music talent around the world.
A microcosm of the world on the stage of the Miela. The 12 young and talented operatic artists have come to Trieste from 9 different countries to stage Mozart's Don Giovanni. The initiative was brought to life by OperUs Academy, an organisation born to cultivate and support classical music talent around the world. The result is a performance of selected scenes - known as an Opera Studio - onstage in Trieste.
Fiorenza Badila Costantini, mezzo-soprano and Manager-Director of OperUs: "It's a formative experience for this group of young artists who come from all over the world... It's important for them to rehearse and make their debut in a role."
The idea was born of similar projects they experienced abroad, in London and San Francisco; brought back to a city which, they say, has enormous potential.
The singers come from France, the United Kingdom, Ireland, but also from America, South Korea, Israel, Russia and Hong Kong.
"What language do you speak?"
"At the start we expected it to be English, but we later discovered they all also picked up Italian so quickly!"
Playing alongside them was the Orchestra Filarmonica del Teatro Verdi di Trieste. The young artists' debut came after a week of rehearsals and study. And, after all this effort, let us let the music speak for itself
