Festival Story:

The Tuscia Operafestival was born from the experience of the organizers of the New Operafestival of Rome that for many years has served as a foundation to encourge and develop talented international young artists to gain a high level of artistry. The artists are given the opportunity of “an Italian” preparation and the possibility to play and to sing in the heart of the archaeological and monumental beauty of Rome.

Stefano Vignati, Artistic Director encourages and hones the talents of the young artists, placing them on the stage alongside world renowned performing artists. Through numerous national and international auditions more than 100 young people are selected personally by the Artistic Director. The International Lyric Academy brings together the young artists with the masters of absolute prestige including Fedora Barbieri, Giuseppe Taddei, Janet Perry, Alexander Malta, Carol Neblett, who prepare the students for their public performances.
