The 35th edition of the Accademia Rossiniana "Alberto Zedda", a study seminar on Rossinian interpretation directed by the Superintendent Ernesto Palacio, inaugurates on, Monday, July 3rd, at the Teatro Sperimentale the Festival Giovane 2023, a section of the Rossini Opera Festival dedicated to the young talents of the future.
For a fortnight the Accademia offers students and auditors lessons in vocal interpretation, musicology and stage art, themed lectures and masterclasses.
Alongside the lessons held by Ernesto Palacio with the musical coordination of Rubén Sánchez-Vieco and the collaboration of Luca Canonici as vocal coach, this year's programme includes talks by directors Stefano Poda and Rosetta Cucchi, musicologists Federico Agostinelli and Marco Beghelli (in collaboration with the Rossini Foundation), physiatrist Frank Musarra and phoniatrist Franco Fussi. Three masterclasses are scheduled, two held by Artistic Director Juan Diego Flórez and one by Conductor Michele Mariotti.
At the end of the courses, on Monday July 17th at 8 p.m. at the Teatro Sperimentale, there will be the usual Final Concert, during which the students, accompanied on the piano by Rubén Sánchez-Vieco, will perform pages from the Rossini opera repertoire.
