EAMT young singers to star on the stage of the National Opera
16. Apr 2019
On 18 and 30 April the title roles of „Le Nozze di Figaro“ by W.A. Mozart will be sung by the young singers of the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre.
The opera is directed by Marco Gandini (Italy) and was premiered at the Estonian National Opera already in 2017. Ene Rindesalu, Head of the EAMT Opera Studio, reveals that „the collaboration with the National Opera which began as early as in 1989, has provided our students with professional skills and opportunities that are unquestionably useful for their careers in the future. Working with the professional orchestra and conductor, developing the roles in close collaboration with the stage director and choreographer, the experience of the dress rehearsals in costumes and make up, and finally the performances with the audience turn the whole process very real. Not to mention the special atmosphere of the opera house… A wonderful experience for everyone, no doubt!“
„Le Nozze di Figaro“ follows the Almaviva household through a single turbulent day. The cast under the baton of Arvo Volmer is following: Raiko Raalik or Žilvinas Steponas Miškinis (Figaro), Siiri Johanson or Kadri Kõrvek (Susanna), Silja Maria Sevonkari or Ille Saar (la Contessa), Janari Jorro (il Conte), Elo-Maarja Trumm or Karis Trass (Cherubino), Jurģis Marcinkevičs (Bartolo), Mehis Tiits (Basilio), Merilin Taul or Merje Uppin (Marcellina), Merit Kraav or Kristine Žogota (Barbarina), Erki Lillemets (Antonio) and Hyun Woo Lee (Don Curzio).
