ABOUT US

The aim of the International Voice Masterclass Ebe Stignani is to support young talented opera singers on their way to a professional career. Students of voice will have the chance to attend a one-week masterclass with professional opera singers and professors of voice. Furthermore, they will have the chance to work with an opera director, developing opera scenes and ensembles on the stage of Teatro Ebe Stignani. After the masterclass, they will perform in a final concert, which is conceived as a competition. This is a chance for them to perform in front of an international jury of opera houses directors, agents and other music professionals. The three best performers will be awarded financial grants.

EBE STIGNANI

Born in Naples in 1903 (some sources cite her year of birth as 1904), Stignani studied music for five years at the San Pietro a Majella Conservatory in Naples, including piano and composition as well as singing. The date of her singing début is usually said to have been in 1925 at the San Carlo opera house in Naples, in the role of Amneris in Verdi’s Aida, but there is evidence that she may have sung a number of roles in the previous year. In 1926, she was invited to La Scala Milan by Arturo Toscanini to sing the part of Princess Eboli in Verdi’s Don Carlo, and Milan continued to be a principal stage for her during the rest of her career. She sang all of the major Italian mezzo-soprano roles, but also tackled Wagner’s Ortrud (Lohengrin) and Brangäne (Tristan und Isolde), and Saint-Saëns’s Dalila (Samson et Dalila) conducted by Victor de Sabata.

She retired from the stage in 1958 after appearances in London (as Azucena) and in Dublin (as Amneris). Thereafter, she lived quietly in retirement at her home in Imola. She had married in 1941 and given birth to a son in 1944.
