The repetiteur is fundamental to any performance of an opera, even beyond the rehearsal period. Their skills often have to extend to conducting the occasional rehearsal, conducting offstage moments - chorus, trumpets up in the balcony, playing keyboard in the pit - as well as continuo for the secco recitative that is so often required. A repetiteur is the singer's key ally in achieving their performance.
The Nando and Elsa Peretti Foundation supports every year a separate annual course for 6 répétiteurs. This course is named "Solti-Peretti Répetitéurs course". Professors from London's Covent Garden, Milan's La Scala, and Chicago's Lyric Opera constitute the teaching faculty of this course. The Solti Peretti Repetiteurs' masterclasses are the first of their kind, offering an intense period of study with some of the finest Repetiteurs of our day.
In 2014, the Nando Peretti Foundation awarded a grant that covers year 2015 to 2017.
In 2018, the Nando and Elsa Peretti Foundation awarded a grant for the period 2018-2020.
