FAVA Opera Journey to France

I have been offered the opportunity to travel to France and begin to jump start my future career by performing the role of Paris, the male lead in Offenbach's La Belle Hélène, a full opera production with orchestra. This has been offered to me by the FAVA Opera Program who will set aside an entire curriculum including AT LEAST two performances of the role, two recitals/concerts, French language studies, Master classes, voice lessons, role preparation, coaching, and career building. It's an extensive and prestigious program that will greatly benefit my road to pursing a career in opera. The program is expensive and they have provided me a partial scholarship to help me, but it is still very expensive and I need all the help I can get if I want to get to France. Please help!
