The projects offered comprise the study of two operas each summer in Vadstena - generally an old, unknown work that has not been performed in modern times and/or a newly written work. During the rehearsal period, everyone involved in the production comes to Vadstena Academy to work intensively together, without the usual distractions of everyday life. The instructors (the director and conductor) work closely together throughout the rehearsal period, which is unusual in the context of professional opera.
