Full Opera Production

Full Opera Program with Costumes and scenary

The International Lyric Academy is the only training program in Italy that offers exclusive agent auditions to participants in the Full Opera and Italian Opera Programs. Throughout the period there will be several opportunities to sing exclusively for Italian agents representing such houses as San Carlo in Naples, Teatro dell’opera in Rome, Arena di Verona and La Scala. This service is free and available only to our best singers.

The Opera productions are a wonderful opportunity for artists. Singers work with the maestros preparing the roles in the 2021 production of 3 performances of SUOR ANGELICA, GIANNI SCHICCHI by G. Puccini and THE OLD MAID AND THE THIEF by G. Menotti.  In addition to the full performances, stagings, rehearsals, costuming, and production craft are all part of the ILA experience. Singers participate in a weekly vocal lesson, Italian language class as well as have multiple opportunities to participate in master classes. Recitals are available at the weekly Florilegium or Grand Gala Concerts.

Due to the Covid-19 emergency present all over the world, we are forced to apply some changes to the program of the 27th edition of the International Lyric Academy in Italy which will take place from June 29 to July 26, 2021, in Vicenza.
As the program and the performances will take place inside the Teatro Comunale of Vicenza, in accordance with the current laws of the Italian Republic, we could not use the Orchestra due to the safety regulations on spacing indoors.
All the operas and concerts will be realized in a concert version with the support of the piano with small stage movements, always respecting the social distancing.
We are confident that you understand the need for such adjustments and we are sure that the program will be implemented with great success despite these restrictions. For ILA’s management, the health of students comes first and we will do everything to protect the
