The Bucharest National Opera has launched studiOpera, an ‘academy’ for professionals in the art of the stage in Romania. This will be a center in which artists, technicians and art managers will be able to perfect their skills.
The program is co-financed by the European Social Fund through the program, The Development of Human Resources 2007- 2013. Invest in People.
The aim of the project is to draw on the top expertise from abroad to improve the performing arts in Romania by expanding the model of the Academiei Teatro alla Scala locally. It will be implemented over the course of three years by the Bucharest National Opera in partnership with Accademia Teatro alla Scala from Milan and SVASTA Consult Romania.
The first stage of the project (November 2009- July 2010) will see extensive research focusing on the entire system of professional formation in Romania, to discover the weaknesses of the system and identify training needs.
