Junges Ensemble

Junges Ensemble

A springboard to the big stage

To sing once on the main stage of the Semperoper – that’s a real dream for many aspiring artists around the world! Since 2004 the Junges Ensemble (»Young Ensemble«) programme of Saxon State Opera has been making this dream come true for highly talented young singers. For at least one season, it offers a bespoke educational and training programme in which the participants take part in performances of the Junges Szene, staged evening recitals, concerts and other Junges Ensemble projects as well as assuming smaller and secondary roles in premieres and repertoire productions. The programme also includes regular master classes, vocal interpretation and dramatic coaching and, if necessary, German lessons. Previous participants have especially appreciated the direct exchange and intensive cooperation with their professional colleagues from the Semperoper ensemble during rehearsals and performances as well as the chance to meet top international guest artists. Since 2010, the Junges Ensemble has also welcomed répétiteurs. In the same year it was awarded the Semperoper Foundation prize.
