Junges Ensemble

A springboard to the big stage

Under the leadership of Thomas Leo Cadenbach, the international Junges Ensemble (Young Ensemble) of the Semperoper Dresden offers highly talented young artists a two-year programme of education and training that includes coaching in voice and acting, role study as well as masterclasses. During rehearsals and performances, the budding artists enjoy direct contact and intensive collaboration with colleagues from the professional ensemble. And, of course, the members of the Junges Ensemble can be heard in performances of the Junge Szene, the Semperoper, Semper Zwei and in concert. The programme also provides training to répétiteurs and assistant stage directors to help prepare them for their future careers.
