Students are provided with actual performing experience in a professional, as they participate in concerts, productions and masterclasses produced by the IOA or in cooperation with one of the IOA’s professional partners.
Internationally celebrated artists are invited to conduct classes in which they freely share their knowledge and experience.
Although a master’s perception may not completely match the style of the programme, IOA views this confrontation as an enrichment for students. In this way, students are given a broader perspective, and get to know different opinions about singing and opera.
Previous masterclasses at the IOA have included such masters as:
Natalie Dessay, Bernarda Fink, Wim Hendrickx, René Jacobs, Laurent Naouri, Déborah Polaski, Pietro Rizzo, Christophe Rousset, Jessica Pratt, Alberto Zedda (†)
