Opera Studio: Summer 2017
The Hoxton Opera Studios will be holding auditions for its 2017 repertoire development courses:
TUESDAY 11 OCTOBER in Hoxton, North London
To secure an audition slot, please send a current biography with a photograph and links to online media to rpg@secret opera.com or complete the Audition Form.
These courses aim to prepare a double cast in full roles of existing repertoire operas in the original language, through individual coaching, masterclasses and public performances. Where we do not manage to cast all roles, scenes and arias will be prepared.
The 2016 courses worked on Britten’s Turn of the Screw, Handel’s Giulio Cesare and Mozart’s La clemenza di Tito and included Masterclasses with the following expert tutors:
Dr Colin Morris, buffo-baritone
Stephen Tiller, actor and director
Andrew Watts, counter-tenor
James Black, artist manager
David Edwards, director
For 2017 we are looking for singers to study and perform the following individual operas:
R. Strauss: DER ROSENKAVALIER (Autumn 2016 – Spring 2017)
Donizetti: L’ELISIR D’AMORE (Spring 2017 – in English)
Wagner: SIEGFRIED (Summer 2017)
The course fee for each of the above courses is £450. Each course will require a rehearsal period of four weeks in total.
The ten-week core course will prepare the three Da Ponte Operas by Mozart:
LE NOZZE DI FIGARO (1786) – £450
DON GIOVANNI (1787) – £450
COSÌ FAN TUTTE (1790) – £450
2 MOZART: £795
3 MOZART: £1095
On acceptance of a place, a non-returnable deposit of £50 is payable.
This is a non-residential course based in North London. International students are welcome, but regretfully we cannot offer any assistance with travel or accommodation costs.
