INTERNATIONAL SUMMER OPERA FESTIVAL OF MORELIA
5 - 26 July 2020
The mission of the International Summer Opera Festival of Morelia (ISOFOM) is to bridge cultures and communities through world class vocal training and performance. ISOFOM brings together musicians from cross cultural worlds to create, perform and grow together through opera. Young Artists and Opera Studio members train in a safe and challenging environment as they embark on their professional careers, providing them with extensive practical training for their artistic, professional, and personal growth.
ISOFOM partners with the 200 plus year old Conservatorio de las Rosas to bring together musicians in both a full scale opera production and the ISOFOM Gala. Students from the Conservatorio join both the ISOFOM orchestra and ISOFOM singers for both of these awe-inspiring productions.
As a part of ISOFOM 2020, all Young Artists and Opera Studio members will perform in Puccini's La Bohème. La Bohème will be performed with orchestra, fully staged and double cast with an additional cover cast. While at ISOFOM, all participants will have the opportunity to sing arias, and / or duets and small ensembles in the annual ISOFOM Gala, accompanied by full orchestra at the beautiful Palacio Clavijero.
