The “Accademia d’Arti e Mestieri dello Spettacolo Teatro alla Scala” is an internationally known institution and a major player in the training sector for live performances, with a special focus on musical theatre performing arts professionals.
In 2005, the Foreign Ministry and the Foundation signed an agreement on the basis of which 9-month scholarships are awarded every year to young foreign artists according to criteria of artistic excellence.
These include opera singers from around the world who pass the Academy’s strict auditions. From 2007 to 2011 the Foreign Ministry’s Directorate General for Cultural and Economic Promotion and Innovation also sponsored the big “European Orchestra” training project by granting yearly 2-month scholarships to ten instrumentalists from prestigious music schools of two different Countries.
