In addition, with the purpose that the selected ones obtain a level of professional excellence, the EOBA offers an integral formation in which its beneficiaries participate in workshops given by specialists, they receive master classes in charge of outstanding personalities of the opera and they are integrated in assemblies national and international operatives.
