Cecilia took me from aspiring drama school graduate to receiving glowing reviews in the lead role in Scena Mundi’s acclaimed production of Richard II. I now feel confident to go into any classical theatre audition knowing I am well prepared.

PROFESSIONAL TRAINING IN CLASSICAL THEATRE

The Conservatoire aims to train actors in the art of classical theatre by teaching them how to understand, enjoy and perform the texts of the classical repertoire. 

Scena Mundi are known for their excellent classical performances, their attention to original texts and the clarity of the actors’ diction and textual work. These specific skills are at the core of the training we offer.

Our classes are taught by professional actors and directors and supported by academics from Cambridge University and the University of La Sorbonne, Paris.

All participants will:

- learn to read and understand classical texts

- work on voice and movement

- practise verse-speaking

- rehearse and perform monologues and scenes 

Students willing to learn about the whole creative process of theatre making may also participate in Scena Mundi’s professional productions in a non-acting capacity. They will share in company life, learn what goes on behind the scenes and play an active part in the productions. We offer short courses and intensive courses for various levels of experience.
