Opera Exam

Liszt Academy and Universität der Künste Berlin

Pulcinella (commedia dell'arte opera presentation)
Featuring: Students of the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music and Universität der Künste Berlin Director: András Almási-Tóth

The Liszt Academy is a dual-purpose institution functioning both as a concert centre and university of the arts. Perhaps nothing shows this duality of purpose better than the end-of-year exam series of the Department of Vocal and Opera Studies, which is open to the general public. Continuing a tradition going back several years, first the aria exam with traditional programme is arranged, when students have to prove themselves in the Grand Hall not only to their professors but the audience as well. After this, even more exciting discoveries can be expected in the opera exam, during which young singers from the Liszt Academy and Universität der Künste Berlin take to the stage under the direction of András Almási-Tóth, a professor with an experimental spirit completely devoid of platitudes. In the past few years, these exam productions have outgrown their ‘school’ boundaries, becoming music-cultural events parading an array of glittering young talent.

Organizer: Liszt Academy Concert Centre
