Following the success of the 2017 | 2018 Ensemble OrQuesta Academies; La Calisto, L'Incoronazione di Poppea, Dido & Aeneas, Acis & Galatea and Xerse, Ensemble OrQuesta returns to the John McIntosh Arts Centre in Fulham, London for their first Opera Academy production of 2019. 

This production marks the return of the opera used for the first Opera Academy in 2014 - Rameau's Les Indes Galantes - this time with direction by Marcio da Silva. The Academy will take place from the 18th - 28th April at the John McIntosh Arts Centre in Fulham, London with two final showcase performances at 7pm on the 27th & 28th April 2019.

Each Academy participant performs at least one performance of a role in the fully staged production of the opera, in original language, with the accompaniment of the Ensemble OrQuesta professional baroque ensemble and harpsichord. 

The Academy course is led by Ensemble OrQuesta founder Marcio da Silva, and early music specialist Petra Hajduchova, with French language coaching by Sarah Parkin. Singers will be coached on French baroque style, ornamentation technique, pronunciation, acting and movement. Professional stage photos are taken at the dress rehearsals.
