- Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel
- Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles

For each application, La Monnaie will seek the approval of the singing teacher of the student in question before accepting the application.
WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO PREPARE FOR THIS AUDITION?
- 1 aria or song of your choice
- A vocalise that can show the full range of your voice to the jury (warm-up exercise that can be repeated both in the high and low parts).
- The imposed choral work (Vieni a' regni del riposo from Gluck's Orfeo et Euridice) is a very important part of this audition. Please download it here and prepare it very thoroughly in the correct style and according to all musical annotations.
- A simple sight-reading so we can determine your level of solfège
We guarantee that you will be able to perform your full programme and that a few weeks after the audition you will receive, together with the result, an honest written feedback.
