The Académie Favart will open in 2023 as a centre of artistic excellence focused on the French repertoire. It will offer training in the Opéra Comique’s rich repertoire, its vocality and especially the spoken-song techniques which characterise comic opera, operettas and musicals.
Through the seasons, the academy will bring stability to young artists, singers, choral directors, conductors… offering masterclasses led by experts and the opportunity to follow some of the Opéra Comique’s productions. To that end, national auditions have already taken place in 2022 and will be held every year
With funds from a generous bequest, the Opéra Comique and the Fondation de France award 9,500€ scholarships to five talented young soloists every year in order to further support young talents while promoting equal opportunities.
