Announcement of scholarships:
Confidencen Opera & Music Young Artist Program 2023
As part of the Confidencen Opera & Music Festival, the Ulriksdal Palace Theatre Confidencen together with the new artistic director Peter Spissky calls for young singers who want to develop their skills in the style of the Baroque within the Confidencen Opera & Music Young Artist Program.
In its fourth year, four more promising and upcoming singers will get the chance to work practically with music from the Baroque repertoire with internationally renowned coaches and musicians from the Confidencen Opera & Music Festival Orchestra. During the summer of 2023 the participants in the academy will explore
a range of styles of the Baroque in a scenic performance we call A Baroque Catwalk.
The repertoire will be hand-picked to fit this year’s selected participants who will be coached during their musical studies by soprano Berit Norbakken, cembalist Marcus Mohlin, cellist Mime Brinkmann and the artistic director of the festival, Peter Spissky. Apart from the musical training, the four singers will receive practice in baroque- gesture and movement together with choreographer Karin Modigh.
The accepted applicants are each given a grant of SEK 15 000.
Place: Ulriksdal Palace Theatre Confidencen, Solna, Stockholm county, Sweden
