Our COSI 2017 Operas:
W.A. Mozart – Don Giovanni
G. Donizetti – L’Elisir d’Amore
G. Puccini – Suor Angelica
The COSI Opera program is tailored to select, advanced undergraduates, graduate singers, and emerging artists ready to build upon their existing performance resume. In addition to Italian language classes taught by certified instructors from the English School of International Languages, each participant will receive a series of one-on-one coaching sessions, and voice lessons. Additionally, singers and pianists have master classes and forums twice weekly. Successful applicants come prepared to stage and perform assigned opera roles in an elite setting and with an international performance training team designed to prepare the emerging artist for the professional opera stage. All roles are double-cast and each cast will receive two performances.
Members of the Opera program may be selected as soloists for our oratorio performances and may also perform in various aria concerts throughout the program in historical Sulmona, and in courtyard concerts in the Abruzzo Region.
