Opera conducting – part 1 (Waterloo)
Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel, Waterloo, Belgium
There are very limited chances internationally for young orchestra conductors to learn to work as an orchestra conductor with opera repertoire. This is the reason why three enoa coorganisers joined forces for a three part workshop on opera conducting.
During three periods in three different places – Amsterdam (Dutch National Opera), Waterloo (Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel) and Lisbon (Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation) – a series of training workshops on different aspects of conducting will take place, fostering participants skills on choir, orchestra and soloists conducting.
The same group of conductors will take part in all three phases of the workshop.
The workshop’s objectives at the Music Chapel: conductors will learn to work with soloists in opera repertoire.
Tutors: Italian Conductor Carlo Rizzi for all three workshops.
There will be one public masterclass with local audience at the Music Chapel.
