Opera conducting – part 3 (Lisbon)
Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Lisbon, Portugal
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 three enoa coorganisers joined forces for a three part workshop 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.
It will be mandatory that the same group of conductors will take part in all three phases of the workshop.
Tutor: Italian Conductor Carlo Rizzi for all three workshops.
The workshop’s objectives at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation: the workshop will mainly focus on the orchestral experience; the participants will have the chance of working with the resident orchestra (Orquestra Gulbenkian).
