The Junges Ensemble of the Semperoper Dresden – Spring board to the Main Stage
Singing on the main stage of the Semperoper is a dream for many young and talented singers from all over the world. Since 2004 this dream has become reality for selected young vocalists of exceptional talent by participating in the Junges Ensemble of the Saxonian State Opera Dresden. For a minimum of one season, the Junges Ensemble offers aspiring operatic performers state-of-the art individual training, as well as the chance to perform roles in productions of the Junge Szene, concerts and projects of the Junges Ensemble, as well as small and medium roles in current and repertoire productions on the main stage. The program also includes regular masterclasses, coachings, role preparation and German language classes if necessary. Past members value the direct exchange and intense collaboration with their colleagues of the State Opera’s ensemble during rehearsals and performances, as well as many encounters with international guest soloists of highest artistic level. In 2010 the Junges Ensemble has been recognized with a prize from the esteemed Foundation for the Support of the Semperoper.
