Pienza

Opera Pienza is a project of the Municipality of Pienza (Val d'Orcia) the 'ideal city' of the Renaissance, Unesco heritage since 1996. The initiative is aimed at promoting and starting the career of young opera singers, and includes the International Competition, vocal and scenic improvement workshops and the summer event Pienza Opera Academy with the setting up of an opera in the evocative setting of Piazza Pio II.

Of particular importance is the International Opera Competition, which in recent years has attracted over 1000 young artists from more than 30 countries. Now in its eleventh edition this year, it will make use, as usual, of a prestigious jury made up of important personalities from the world of opera: among the confirmed names, Adua Veroni Pavarotti, president - Francesca Barbieri, music consultant - Mark Cleméur, consultant of Opera Pienza - Alberto Gazale, lyric artist - Pascale Montauban, Arien and Artists Agency; other accessions are being defined.

The winners will be assigned a role in the staging of the opera that will be represented in the summer event Pienza Opera Academy 2022. There are also cash prizes (currently being defined), and at the discretion of the jurors, the singers deemed deserving will be given the opportunity to present themselves for an audition at the Deutsche Oper Theater in Berlin, Théâtre La Monnaie in Brussels, Aalto-Theater Essen .
