And to top it all off, the final four days of the intensive are spent in residency in Central City. The students will see all of the 2011 opera productions (Carmen, Amadigi di Gaula, and our rotating double bill selected from Gianni Schicchi, Les Mamelles di Tiresias, and Seven Deadly Sins). Students also observe several of the classes taken by members of Central City Opera's Bonfils-Stanton Foundation Artists Training Program, which often include Diction or Audition topics. Many Central City Opera Festival company members teach and work directly with the intensive students; past master classes include performance technique with music director John Baril, stage combat and movement sessions, and one-on-one discussions with principal artists and staff members. The students also perform their scenes and opera program for the public during this final weekend. (Those of you who are now dying to WATCH this performance, stay tuned for details and hold open the weekend of July 28-30.)
