AsLiCo Academy

The AsLiCO Academy, natural cradle for young opera singers, finalists and winners of the AsLiCo Competition established in 1946, aims to be a path, not just a place, of one year, towards the debut of the performing roles presented for the Competition.

The AsLiCo Academy is made official in 2017, thanks to the contribution of “Sillumina”, a competition notice announced by the Ministry of Heritage and of Culture and Tourism and SIAE; this step has made it possible to structure and codify a whole series of training activities for young artists, which were already among the proposals and had emerged several times emerged in the history of the Competition.

Founded in Milan in 1949 by Senator Giovanni Treccani degli Alfieri, AsLiCo (Associazione Lirico Concertistica) was established for the purpose of “paving the way for young singers with adequate natural skills” and to make “of didactic and experimental, theatrical and artistic activities not a profession but a vocation”. Consolidated in more than 70 years of history, AsLiCo has broadened its horizons, promoting numerous initiatives and projects, always aimed at training the young finalists and winners of the various editions, offering them important opportunities of work and of artistic and professional growth.

The training of a singer cannot be limited to the acquisition of exclusively musical skills, it being the study of vocal technique and musical interpretation (which still remain essential starting points), but must include the acquisition of broader interdisciplinary skills, so that the young professional can face today’s working world in a conscious and competitive way.

The Academy courses, with compulsory attendance for the winners of the AsLiCo Competition, are organized from February to October, in different modules divided in lectures and workshops. They are always entrusted to renowned professionals, who represent the excellence in their field of specialization: conductors, directors, choreographers, singers, vocal coaches, master trainers, dramatists, musicologists, managers and artistic directors.

Lecturers are chosen by the AsLiCo Management, according to the specific aims of each course and in relation to the opera productions in which the singers will be subsequently signed, for example those of the OperaLombardia circuit and of the Festival Como Città della Musica.

The courses delve into themes from the history of music, of poetry, to dramaturgy and scenic art; some analyze body awareness, relaxation techniques and motor training, others music management and communication, languages and much more.

Courses are intertwined with a significant practical experience, so to always keep a contact with the productions, different stages and audiences. This is why the young singers are always called to perform in the countless activities organized by AsLiCo: small concerts, previews and meetings with the public, the Festival Como Città della Musica, the Opera Education projects, other local productions and the OperaLombardia circuit productions.
