germany-music4

Auch in diesem Jahr präsentieren sich Gesangstudenten verschiedener amerikanischer Universitäten in Opernaufführungen an zwei sächsischen Theatern. Die Besonderheit des Sommerkurses  für alle Teilnehmer ist die Möglichkeit, gleich an zwei renommierten Opernhäusern in laufende Produktionen integriert zu werden und hier ihr Können zu beweisen. Erleben Sie junge beeindruckende Stimmen in der Mozartoper „Zauberflöte“ in den Landesbühnen Radebeul und treffen Sie echte Amerikaner in der „Hello Dolly“ – Inszenierung des Mittelsächsischen Theaters auf der Seebühne Kriebstein. Und wie in jedem Jahr erwarten Sie die Sänger mit kleinen Eigenproduktionen auf wunderbaren historischen und romantischen kleinen Bühnen wie die  Kapelle des Klosters Buch, die alte Bibliothek des Klosters Altzella oder der Barocksaal von Schloss  Lauenstein.
