BEL CANTO WORKSHOP | Interpretative technique and style

During the 2021/22 season, the Opéra Royal de Wallonie-Liège will be proposing a new event open to artists and the general public: 6 days of a Master Class based on the bel canto style.

Open to all singers (under 38 years) with a music academy diploma and professional training, this Master Class will alternately be given by two major specialists of the bel canto style: soprano Alessandra Rossi and baritone Bruno de Simone.

Both are soloists as well as good teachers and will carry out an in-depth exploration of the bel canto repertoires with each participant, paying special attention to the technical aspects that are specific to this style, but also to the stylistic relevance of and approach to a role, the study methodology and the quest for the beautiful sound as part of an expressive project, or also identification of the repertoire based on each participants’ vocal qualities and acting abilities.

In addition to the learning opportunities for the participants, the Master Class will also be open to the general public, who will be able to take a look behind the scenes, namely into how artists prepare to play a role.

It is possible to attend the Master Class not only as effective singers but also as a listener.

On completion of this Master Class, under the supervision of Bruno De Simone and Alessandra Rossi, the participants, accompanied on the piano, will display all the benefits of this training in a closing concert on Sunday 10st of October at 15.00.
