Giulio Cesare in Egitto
The first edition of Handel Opera Academy took place in July 2022 and focused on “Giulio Cesare in Egitto” – one of the best and most famous baroque operas.
17 participants from 12 countries spent a full month training with our teachers and directors. Final performances including 3 casts took place on July 29th, 30th and 31st in the theatre of Tarnogórskie Centrum Kultury.

I enjoyed the staging because of its modernity and the musical rehearsals really helped in bringing out the character’s emotions through my voice. Enrique did great job of getting all of us away from singing prettily and working on conveying the characters which is so important and something that was really helpful for me!
I had a wonderful time and it was a very good experience for me as a singer.
Tarnowskie Góry is a very cute town with lots of great restaurants. I wish I had a chance to visit the Silver Mines! I’m sure many future participants would be interested in doing that should the HOA take place in Tarnowskie Góry again. It was very convenient how close the hotel was to the rehearsal space!
I had so much fun and the experience showed me that Baroque music and Baroque opera is something I would really like to do as part of my future career.
