The courses of the Accademia del Belcanto “Rodolfo Celletti” have limited seats. There are fifteen seats available for academic year 2022.

To access the courses, students must pass a preliminary pre-selection test on the basis of qualifications and video recordings. A live audition examination is reserved exclusively for those candidates who have passed the pre-selection test.

Academy sessions

Academic year 2022 is made up of 40 days of study divided in three sessions:

• Session One: from 27th April to 6th May 2022

• Session Two: from 9th to 28th June 2022

• Session Three: from 4th to 13th November 2022

These days of study will be complemented by work-experience during the 48th Festival della Valle d’Itria, as well as concerts and music productions by the Fondazione Paolo Grassi, and will result in a contract of collaboration, and compensation commensurate with the commitment.
