Operavision Academy

Operavision Academy Operavision Academy is an International Institute of Lyric Opera specializing in the professional development of opera singers on a broad scale.

Every singing artist arrives at a crossroad in their journey of service to music. Ask yourself, am I the best I can be? Do I feel free to give my best self when onstage, and am I singing the correct style, realizing the most understandable diction, and am I believable as the role I am asked to bring to life? Today is the first day of our extending the invitation to you the artist, to add to the layers of achievement already accomplished in your life. Taking the next step to be the fully realized artist you SEE yourself being. Operavision is a refuge for those who wish to see themselves in a new way, a three week intensive course designed specifically to help an artist emerge as the best they can be. It isn't always about notes on a page, words that mean nothing, sounds that carry no message. The light shines on you here at Operavision. The singer is the epicenter. Because opera without voice is a symphony.

Qui #Busseto | VERDI D'ORO

Sabato 14 luglio, nella magnifica cornice del Cortile della Rocca Municipale, l’Associazione Culturale Amici di Verdi e il Comune di Busseto in collaborazione con il Museo Renata Tebaldi e con il contributo di FONDAZIONE CARIPARMA assegnano il prestigioso premio “Verdi d’Oro Città di Busseto” al celebre soprano Aprile Millo. Il premio viene assegnato agli artisti che hanno onorato nel mondo il nome del Maestro Verdi: per la prima volta è stato consegnato a Carlo Bergonzi nel 1972, poi hanno ricevuto il premio anche Renata Tebaldi (1973); Fiorenza Cossotto (1974); il Coro del Teatro alla Scala (1975); Piero Cappuccilli (1978); Cesare Siepi (1979); Renato Bruson (1985); Ghena Dimitrova (1987); Riccardo Muti (1992); Placido Domingo e Franco Zeffirelli (2002); Zubin Mehta (2014) e Leo Nucci (2016).

La consegna del premio ad Aprile Millo si terrà alle ore 21.00 e sarà preceduta da un concerto in memoria di Carlo Bergonzi, nell’imminenza del quarto anniversario della morte, con la partecipazione del baritono Roberto De Candia, del soprano Gioia Crepaldi, del tenore Rubens Pelizzari accompagnati dal pianoforte del maestro Elio Scaravella. A consegnare la targa premio ad Aprile Millo saranno il presidente dell’Associazione Amici di Verdi - che quest’anno celebra il 50esimo di fondazione - Maestro Fabrizio Cassi e il sindaco del Comune di Busseto Giancarlo Contini. La Millo ha iniziato la sua carriera proprio a Busseto vincendo nel 1978 il concorso internazionale “Voci Verdiane”: è stata una delle regine del Metropolitan dove ha interpretato le eroine verdiane di Aida, Desdemona, Luisa Miller e Leonora de “Il Trovatore”; alla Scala ha esordito interpretando Elvira di Ernani. Per il terzo anno consecutivo l’artista terrà a Busseto la Masterclass di Interpretazione e Canto Lirico rivolta a cantanti lirici e studenti di canto italiani e stranieri.

“Aprile Millo - commenta il presidente degli Amici di Verdi Fabrizio Cassi - merita il Verdi d’oro per la sua straordinaria carriera svolta in tutti i più grandi teatri del mondo e con i più grandi interpreti del mondo dell’opera a cominciare dal nostro Carlo Bergonzi, Luciano Pavarotti, James Levine, Sinopoli e tanti altri. Inoltre è bello che Busseto l’abbia premiata nel 1978 col Primo premio del concorso Voci Verdiane per indicarle l’inizio della professione e la premi ora per celebrarne la luminosissima carriera col Verdi D’Oro. Busseto vuole esser sempre più nel destino di Aprile Millo”. Emozionato anche il sindaco Giancarlo Contini che ricorda la premiazione del 1978 per mano del commendator Bergonzi: “Un onore per Busseto attribuire il premio ad una grande artista verdiana che ha cantato in tutto il mondo a fianco di Bergonzi. Ringrazio - conclude - gli Amici di Verdi per l’assidua ricerca sulle voci che porta al conferimento del Verdi d’Oro”.

I biglietti per il concerto e la premiazione sono disponibili in prevendita alla sede degli Amici di Verdi, in via Roma 119, dalle 10.00 alle 12.30 e dalle 15.00 alle 18.30. Da martedì 10 luglio i soci potranno acquistare il biglietto a 10€, mentre venerdì 13 e sabato 14 saranno disponibili i biglietti per la libera vendita a 15€. In caso di maltempo lo spettacolo si terrà al Teatro Giuseppe Verdi di Busseto.
