The European Music Academy

   The European Music Academy is focused on working with singers and conductors who are advanced students and those who have already begun a professional career. Participants will work with the North Czech Philharmonic Teplice under the guidance of internationally renowned artists with professional experience from prominent opera houses such as the Metropolitan Opera, The National Theatre in Prague, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Grand Opéra de Paris, The San Francisco Opera, Covent Garden, The Vienna State Opera, and the Festivals of Bayreuth and Salzburg. All masterclass participants will have the opportunity to study Mozart's Cosi fan tutte and Tchaikovsky´s Eugene Onegin. Additionally, participating singers may coach selections from their own repertoire.

The culmination of the masterclass is the Beethoven Award, which will be granted a number of participants selected by the panel of lecturers. The prize includes professional artistic commitments with symphonic orchestras, theatres in the Czech Republic and auditions for German theatres.

Participants in the masterclass will enjoy unparalleled training opportunities rooted in the rigors of extensive work with a full-size professional orchestra. Rehearsals with the North Czech Philharmonic will take place in the city of Teplice, home to the famous spa resort here Goethe met Beethoven, and where Liszt and numerous other illustrious personalities such as the Austrian and German emperors enjoyed medical care, concerts, opera, and theatrical performances.
