OPERA SEME – Program of Voice

An opera immersion experience in Tuscany, Italy

Opera Seme | June 30 – July 28, 2024 – III Edition





Opera Seme strives to give singers and pianists an immersive Italian experience through language study, cultural exploration, lessons, coachings, masterclasses, special topics workshops, and performances.

Opera Seme is hosted by Spazio Seme International Artistic Center located in Arezzo, Italy.


​The deep artistic history of Arezzo, its optimal location between Florence and Rome, and the small size of the intimate city make it a perfect spot for those that want an authentic study abroad experience in Italy. It’s the ideal place to soak up Tuscany’s ambiance while bypassing the region’s crowded cities.


Arezzo is the hometown of Guido d’Arezzo–the father of modern Western musical notation–and is about an hour away from Florence, the birthplace of opera. Located in picturesque southeastern Tuscany, the city of just under 100,000 boasts a wide range of sites to see including fortresses, monuments, churches, museums, theaters, and ancient Roman and Etruscan archeological ruins.
