This year as part of the Summer Festival, we will be performing Gluck’s Iphigenie en Aulide as our opera. This opera has an exciting plot and the music has attracted composers like Richard Wagner to stage the opera. There are a wide variety of parts and we need a huge chorus so everyone will have the chance to get involved.
Auditions will be held on Saturday 9th March from 1-8 in the Dome. In your 10 minute audition you will just be required to sing one of the provided extracts - don’t worry, you won’t have to say the name of the opera! Please sign up for an audition slot in the music office and you can collect the extracts from there as well.
If you don’t sing you can still be involved. We will obviously be in need of an orchestra, therefore if you would like to play in the orchestra then please sign up on the Sinfonia sign up sheet and then we will select the players from there.
We have a great opera team this year and it is going to be an exciting project to be involved in. An opportunity to be in an opera is one that you cannot afford to miss.
