“Opera = happening!”

“Art is comforting and confronting, more than with beauty it has to do with truth.”

“The European Opera Academy is a most entrepreneurial program: students find themselves in challenging intensive training and production, much alike the pressure cooking excitement of professional opera making, and they can choose their own path.”
