Institute for Music Theater (IMT)
Opera singing is music theater performance. Training at the Institute for Music Theater (IMT) sees singing and stage performance as a unity, inextricably linking voice, music, and stage for musical theater performers. Up-and-coming directors explore new and traditional communication channels and methodological approaches at IMT, where skills and research are united. The result is a deeper understanding of aesthetic contexts, awakening a curiosity for innovative theater formats.
Training music theater performers and directors under one roof reveals current and future expressive possibilities of music theater. Understanding music theater as more than opera is achieved in a cultural, political and social context. Music theater uniquely conveys, explores, and expands esthetic and social experience. Study at IMT is individually tailored to student personal profiles. Professors and lecturers are committed, highly motivated, internationally renowned singers and directors. Most work in a team with shared abilities to efficiently train the next generation of music theater achievers.
