Born in Tuscany, from childhood in love with opera, studied Foreign Languages and Literature as well as Linguistics at the University of Pisa. 1981-2013 Professor at the Department of Romance Studies, University of Salzburg. Since 1998 Italian language coach at the Salzburg State Theatre, supervising every production in Italian. Regularly invited as language coach for new productions at the Bavarian State Opera Munich. Particularly appreciated as a consultant in connection with the textual revision of Baroque operas.

We recommend this offer of individual lessons to students wishing to perfect their pronunciation skills of the Italian opera literature. In this Italian course students can learn idiomatic diction through correct pronunciation and may reach the appropriate phrasing on the basis of a detailed analysis of the text. Thus students will obtain a deep understanding of every nuance in their text and will be able to shape their performance as idiomatically as possible with the correct pronunciation and phrasing, allowing more freedom on stage during a performance.

The Italian course is particularly recommended to students in the singing classes.
Reduced course fee (80€) for singers.
