Dedicated to the next generation of performers, the Académie Favart focuses on the promotion of the Opéra Comique’s repertoire and on the transmission of its specific art of interpretation, which deeply draws on text and theatrical play.
The Académie is a center of artistic excellence, focusing on French singing and spoken-song techniques. It strives to promote the emergence of a new generation of performers, inviting them to take a fresh look at the comic opera genre and its vibrancy.
Each season, the Académie welcomes:
• 2 orchestra conductors ;
• 1 choirmaster ;
• 2 stage assistants;
• 5 singers ;
• 2 pianist choirmaster.
Each season, our Passerelle scheme offers a member of the Maîtrise the opportunity to benefit from the Académie’s training programme and to take part in some of its artistic projects.
