London Bel Canto Festival

The London Bel Canto Festival is seeking out the highest level of performers as both teachers and students. We look to cultivate the presence of bel canto in Britain and to bring about a flourishing of the performance practice. One of our main aims is to increase the profile of Britain, British performers, theatres, and the history of Britain in relationship to the performance of the bel canto. As of 2018, the festival will include a one-day academic conference to discuss the topics regarding contemporary research on opera and performance practice of the bel canto era.

In as much as Bel Canto is a repertoire, historical period and performance practice theory with its concepts and performance style, it is also as much about contemporary theatrical performance. To this end, alongside historical bel canto works, we will be developing new works by contemporary composers to help express the fullest of bel canto vocal principles in modern settings.
