About us

Directed by Antoine Gindt and Léo Warynski, produced by T&M in Nîmes, in an appropriate setting and exceptional cultural context, the Academy offers a unique training course dedicated to the approach and practice of staging musical works.

Under the mentorship of a professional team, with renowned and experienced performers (soloists and musicians), the Academy gives the selected teams the possibility to stage a reference work of 20th century music theatre.

This production will be showed to the public and to the professionals at the end of the Academy.

The Academy has three main goals:

  • To offer a time of training, learning and practicing, reflection and exchange to young staging teams and to young artists coming from art, musical, theatrical (…) studies,
  • To give a chance to young artists to be in touch with the fundamental music theater repertoires of 20th and 21st century,
  • To share this educational period with the public and with cultural and performing arts professionals.


The Academy will start on February 2022 (Staging projects).
Courses and workshops will take place in Nîmes, May 2-14, 2022.
