The PUCCINI International Opera Composition Course is addressed to composers (both with or without an academic degree) willing to investigate thoroughly all compositional techniques in use
in opera writing today, focusing both on the Italian tradition and on the genre’s contemporary international developments.
The course’s aim is to hand down the great opera tradition, having as a target the creation of new operas, bridging the past and the future in a new and enthralling vision.

Participants will get to a deeper understanding of the various aspects of composing for opera theatre.

  • The best projects will be selected to be performed as mise-en-scene at the ‘PUCCINI Chamber Opera Festival 2021’ in collaboration with Teatro del Giglio of Lucca
  • All scores produced will be published and recorded video/audio by EMA Vinci
