Seminar: Let Them Shine
Målgruppe: Miniseminar for professionals working in the field of developing young talents in opera, theatre, music or dance
Varighed: 10:00 am-1:00 pm
With young talents on the opera scene, different expressions and a demand for new formats and working methods open up. But what is the challenge for producers, composers, instructors and, in particular, the young talents, to make it all the the way?
Opera expresses itself in a wide variety of aesthetic languages, and there are many possibilities to "shine". The seminar presents three different examples with young people on stage in opera formats developing the artistic potential of young talents.
