As early as the 2015/16 Faust Season, the Opera decided to take into its own hands the training of those fine musicians who are thinking about a career with Hungary’s oldest philharmonic orchestra (which performs both theatrical productions and symphonic concerts). After having their applications accepted and auditioning, 8-12 musicians will be able to take part in the two-year training session under the guidance of the Opera, with a personal mentor assigned to assist with the education of the given instrumental part. The students will also be invited to play at various special performances, as well as participate in section rehearsals and other professional activities. They can also receive a scholarship for the duration of their studies.
The vocational director of the Orchestra Academy is the principal music director of the Opera.
