The "Thuringia Opera Studio" came about through a collaboration between the Weimar Franz Liszt University of Music, the German National Theatre Weimar, the Nordhausen/Sondershausen Theatre and Theater Erfurt. It offers a post-graduate course of studies that allows young, highly gifted singers to gain professional career experience on the opera stage – prepared and accompanied by in-depth studies at the University.
The aim is that the bursary holders (max. 6 per season) should be able to expand their artistic skills on a financially independent basis and thus move a step ahead of their competitors at the start of their career. The cooperating theatres play a substantial part in financing the Thuringia Opera Studio.
