Franco Sciannameo"Prova d'orchestra" is the latest production by Conservatorio "F.A. Bomporti" of Trento, Italy in partnership with BXA Intercollege Degree Programs and four other European institutions of higher learning. This project, conceived by BXA Director Franco Sciannameo, is based on Federico Fellini's famous film Prova d'orchestra (The Orchestra Rehearsal, 1979). It involves a full symphony orchestra, an actor/narrator, and the use of animated videos inspired by Fellini's (pre)text caricature drawings. BXA Programs and the Trento Conservatory have signed a Memorandum of Understanding which promotes the exchange of students beginning in Spring 2013.
