About Our Program

Operafestival di Roma brings current students a complete resume-building performance opportunity unmatched by any other summer opera program, combining over 20 years of experience with the incredible settings of central Italy. Our program is based in Orvieto, with performance tours to Rome, and boasts fully staged productions which are accompanied by a professional orchestra.

Housing our program in Orvieto presents an incredible opportunity to perform in the magnificent Teatro Mancinelli, built in 1838 and recently restored to its original historic beauty by a comprehensive renovation.

“You will be captured by the richness of the decorations in the foyer and even more stunned, in the stalls area, by the four tiers of finely decorated boxes, by the marvellous Danza delle Ore on the ceiling, and [the Three Muses] on the arco armonico each with her respective symbols, all valuable frescoes by Cesare Fracassini.” - Vivi Orvieto
