MOSCOW, October 20 (Itar-Tass) - The Galina Vishnevskaya Opera Centre will continue Young Opera Singers Sessions, a project conceived by Maestro Placido Domingo and Russian soprano Galina Vishnevskaya, in Vienna on Sunday.
The soloists of the centre - Nana Cherkezia, Anna Marshania and Savva Tikhonov - will perform together with the JET youth programme in Vienna’s Kammeroper, a representative of the Galina Vishnevskaya Opera Centre told Itar-Tass.
The centre has already been organizing such sessions in cooperation with academies of young singers at world theatres for the third year.
These sessions are invaluable and irreplaceable experience for singers that gives them an opportunity to communicate with the western culture, a different school of vocal music, said Olga Rostropovich, Artistic Director at the Galina Vishnevskaya Opera Centre in Moscow.
Last season joint master classes and a gala concert of soloists of the centre and JET programme triumphed in Moscow. This time young opera singers will gather in Austria’s capital to exchange creative and professional experience.
The head of JET youth programme Sebastian Schwarz, who is also the Artistic Director at Theater an den Wien and Kammeroper, has repeatedly cooperated with the Galina Vishnevskaya Opera Centre and has served on the jury of the Galina Vishnevskaya International Opera Singers Competition.
“The goal of such sessions and meetings is to see how young singers grow, in what direction they work to translate together with them the ideas of opera conductors and directors into a future reality,” he said.
