175 Academy students had the opportunity to work at the highest levels (and land prestigious work)
The curtain fell on Mozart's Magic Flute, successfully directed by Peter Stein and staged by 175 students of Accademia Teatro La Scala by partnering with CDP. The under-30 artists put on the work with the quality of seasoned professionals with excellent results, according to members of the audience and critics. The initiative demonstrates the importance of believing in and betting on talented youth. CDP made that bet and the success achieved by the performance confirms the value of the data to support this ambitious project. With concrete results: following the close of the Magic Flute, many students received job offers to perform on the world’s most prestigious theatrical stages.
Quality ranging from lighting and sound to costumes, carried out by the La Scala students, was on par with that of the famous opera house’s workers, as pointed out by costume designer Anna Maria Heinreich, speaking specifically about the tailoring students. The next appointment is with Hansel and Gretel, the work that students will bring to the La Scala stage in September 2017.
France’s Artè television channel recorded and re-launched the opera as an example of success in promoting young talent.
