“Azatt Sessions” - Performance Masterclass workshops for singers:
Internationally celebrated stage director and acting coach Marc Verzatt joins forces with acclaimed pianist and conductor Aza Sydykov to conduct a weekly series of masterclasses and workshops for opera singers of all ages. A part of the Festival’s Music Institute, the “Azatt Sessions" offers opportunities for in-depth study of audition materials and expert guidance in preparing to appear in auditions. While Professor Verzatt works with singers on dramatic interpretation and stage comportment, Maestro Sydykov focuses on musical accuracy and expression as well as linguistic correctness.
Singers engage in regularly scheduled two-hour repertory workshops conducted at the Eurasia Festival’s studio on Park Avenue. These sessions are expertly designed to elevate participating singers’ audition packages to levels that will distinguish them as exceptional in the highly competitive field of operatic performance.
The performance master class workshop is open to 5 singers per two-hour session.
Students who will attend at least three sessions will be offered the opportunity to appear in a ticketed public event presented by the Eurasia Festival in its beautiful music salon in the Murray Hill section of Manhattan.
Not only will the performance be professionally photographed; professional audio and video recordings of the event will be made available to the students.
