The Summer Opera Bamberg is a European project aimed at promoting young orchestra and opera talent. It offers qualified students and college graduates of EU Member States the possibility to gather first practical opera experience for their professional career. Eligible are music students and young graduate musicians as well as talented vocal students and young, already professionally qualified singers with first opera experience. From the middle of September until the beginning of October Puccini's "La Bohème" will be produced together in a three-week workshop. Subsequently the opera will be presented several times in October at the theatre of Bamberg.

Edda Moser, the well known soprano singer and highly appreciated vocal teacher will offer an exclusive masterclass "singing" featuring one-on-one tuition for the soloist ensemble of the SOB. The artistic director of the house Rainer Lewandowski takes over the artistic direction. Music director of the SOB is Till Fabian Weser who already had responsibility for the successful Summer Opera Bamberg 2005 and 2007. Besides the artistic and musical courses the participants have the possibility to learn important strategies in the field of career development and self-management in personal one-on-one interviews with the career planner and tenor Dirk Schauß.
