These unprecedented times have been challenging for the performing arts. But they also create opportunities for innovation and change. Through firsthand experience and the trial and error of creation, a critical mass of artists have launched a new, hybrid form of lyric preparation and performance. In partnership with American conductor Kamna Gupta, Cesaroni Consulting has developed teaching modules, webinars and a detailed handbook for schools and producers interested in implementing a digital, remote or hybrid rehearsal and recording plan at a professional level. The teaching material covers:

 

  • Best practices

  • New job descriptions and expectations for performers and staff

  • Technical requirements 

  • Future applications:

    • Graded projects for Universities or conservatories

    • Digital and/or remote projects for opera companies

    • Remote rehearsal planning and execution

    • Advanced musical preparation for standard, hybrid or virtual projects

 

Other forays into digital opera education lack the international performing pedigree and the 'in the trenches', detailed knowledge Kamna and Lucia have accrued after singing, recording, conducting, coaching and creating content in this digital world over a four-month period.

 

The process begins with a short, introductory webinar for performers, music staff, administrators and production teams at opera companies or schools. Kamna and Lucia can also support the implementation of rehearsals and remote or hybrid content creation. Troubleshooting, supporting materials, technical information and guidance included!
