The OPERA INSTITUTE is Poland and Europe’s unique academic, teaching and research platform connected with operatic element understood as a specific type of continuation of the ideas of ancient Greece. It unites students and professors of numerous universities around the opera territory understood that way – its sources, history, language, tools and skills, and it prepares future creators – practitioners and theoreticians for working at… the musical score theatre. The OPERA INSTITUTE refers to the best traditions of the European camerata phenomenon. Its identity foundation is the noble European Camerata Fiorentina tradition and the sensible native tradition of Collegium Nobilium. Our name, the OPERA INSTITUTE [institutum – arrangement, tradition, intention, learning, method; opera – work, deed, service], also constitutes our identity and mission, whereas COLLEGIUM NOBILIUM [collegium – association, union, brotherhood; nobilium – noble, prominent, aristocratic], founded by Stanisław Konarski  on Miodowa Street, as the Collegium Nobilium Theatre of the National Academy of Dramatic Art in Warsaw, is our home, theatre and heart of the Academy and the OPERA INSTITUTE. Many years and ways of collaboration of Warsaw’s three artistic universities – University of Music, Academy of Fine Arts, and National Academy of Dramatic Art – known for the last seven years as the OPERA INSTITUTE will mark the new foundation act [also in a formal and legal sense] of the specific triumvirate of artistic institutions of higher education. The OPERA INSTITUTE is a metaphysical laboratory of the great triad of modern theatre: Harlequin’s Theatre [commedia dell’arte], Prospero’s Theatre [theatre in theatre] and Orpheus’ Theatre [dramma per musica]. While examining the sources of theatre, it searches for its contemporary vividness, it searches for the music score theatre, and the MUSIC SCORE THEATRE... is the INDIGENT OPERA.
