This program is now open for application!
Deadline to submit your audition: Saturday December 10, 2022
This is an in-person music course, held at the VSO School
Hone your operatic skills this winter as you study, stage and perform scenes from a wide range of opera – both solos and ensembles. Suitable for intermediate to advanced singers who have studied voice, have performance experience and can read music, this 10-week course focuses on the vocal and acting elements of opera: bringing arias and ensembles to life on stage.
Prospective participants apply by video audition, and will be grouped in appropriate scenes according to voice type and experience level. Rehearsals are scheduled in the acoustically excellent Pyatt Hall and other classrooms, leading up to a final staged, costumed performance.
After the December 10th deadline, roles will be assigned and music provided.
All music must be memorized by the first rehearsal on Jan 10, 2023.
