Italian Opera

Throughout the centuries, many different musical influences reached Italy by way of people from several different places coming to settle there, but in the late XVI century melodrama was invented, and was considered the most complete expression of musical civilization ever created in Italy.

Italian musical theatre started in the XVII century at the court of the Medici in Florence. Euridice, by Jacopo Peri, was staged at the Pitti Palace for the marriage of Maria de’ Medici to Henry IV of France. But only a few courtesans were able to enjoy the show, staged as it was to mark a special event thanks to the sponsorship of the Prince, and once over, the work was soon forgotten. But with time it grew more and more popular among the people and the same show would start to be repeated night after night.

The most famous Italian opera writers are Rossini, Donizetti, Bellini, Puccini, leoncavallo, Mascagni and Verdi, who all effectively voiced the feelings and anxieties of Italian society of their day. And it was through opera, above all, that those feelings were expressed.

The Accademia Europea di Firenze is located in the heart of Florence, Italy and thus creates an ideal environment for the Opera Libretto course. The AEF School is near the greatest venues in Florence, It offers the best value for an Opera Libretto course in Italy.

Although the Opera Libretto Course can be taken alone, other students usually have chosen to combine the Italian language Courses and the Opera Libretto Course and that's why we've created the Intensive Music Courses (Italian + Music).
