Summer Internship Reflections – Starting Out: Andrew Breuninger

Posted on: August 20th, 2013 by Grace Kutney No Comments

My first full week was filled with Italian class every morning Monday through Friday from 9-12. My schedule changes from day to day after that with a chance for lunch either at a restaurant or I cook something in the apartment. The rest of my day consists of either coachings on scenes, individual coachings for Così or masterclasses. I have a lesson once each week in addition to the coachings and from the late afternoon to the evening there is staging for Così fan tutte. It is wonderful to have the opportunity to work with so many different people from so many different operatic backgrounds and even after a week, I have learned a good deal of Italian, wonderful new approaches to my singing technique, how to better incorporate acting and singing., As well as witnessing a new director/conductor and how they stages opera/rehearse the cast.
