Classic Lyric Arts: Lingua della Lirica

July 22nd-August 16th 2018 La Lingua della Lirica (The Language of Opera) is an intensive summer training program in Italy for young opera singers. Lasting three and a half weeks our course is committed to the development of the well-rounded singer who strives for excellence, providing concrete tools that prepare a singer’s progression from student to young professional artist.

Beginning with the premise that the music, poetry, and art of the bel canto are as vital and relevant today as they were 200 years ago, La Lingua della Lirica (LLL) focuses on developing distinctive lyric diction, persuasive and powerful stage presence, and a connection to the traditions of the classical Italian repertoire–the stylistic principles of the bel canto.

Singers in our program experience a direct link to their art by being fully immersed into the daily life of an Italian village, along with an intensive study of the Italian language, the fundamentals of diction and phonetics, musical traditions and styles, acting and movement techniques, as well as weekly excursions connecting the singers to the culture and history of Italy.
