the master – classes: preparation of the singers, sometimes even instrumentalists by lectures of well – known singing professors or singers. in 2006 the principal professor was maria jonas / germany, a specialist for early music technic back to the medieval times. in 2007 it was the famous tenor nigel rogers / great bitain , first and named best orfeo – performer of our times. in 2008, start of the preparations for our upcomming production of semele of g. f. händel, it was and is professor charlotte lehmann / germany. she is the teacher of – for example – thomas quasthoff and professor at the universities of hannover and würzburg. those lectures are accompeigned by basical scenic work, often a second professor or lecturer for singing with a strong focus on recitation and language skills.
the production: final meeting of three to six weeks where the productions are staged, including the construction of the scenery and the built – up of the orchestra, in case it doesn’t exist one at the place of this meeting. in the first three years of the co-operation we needed early music specialists as well as for upcomming semele, so we assembled them from all-over europe. usually we involve volunteers, assistants and stage-crew of local and international provenance and make beginners familiar with cultural organization.
