Piccola Opera will hold open auditions on June 16, 9:00 AM – 11:00 AM for “Operatastic”. This fully staged opera presentation will feature music from “La Traviata”; “The Magic Flute”; “Hansel & Gretel”; “Faust” and will perform July 20 & 21 at the Concord City Auditorium.
The evening rehearsal schedule begins on July 9 and will be available to view at the auditions on June 16. All interested singers are asked to prepare an Italian Art Song for the audition or another light classical piece.
“We are very proud of our work with young singers in our Piccola Opera Youth program and look forward to offering the opportunity to sing with professional opera performers. In addition to practicing the opera scenes, students will also learn the basics of healthy vocal production, stage movement/dance and musical fundamentals”, says Catherine Martinez, Executive Director of Piccola Opera.
There is no fee for participating in “Operatastic”, but all singers chosen to perform must become members of this non profit organization.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for younger students to experience opera in a fun and interactive way. Today’s youth are tomorrow’s opera supporters, and this Youth Opera workshop fulfills Piccola Opera’s mission to educate, entertain, and enlighten the public,” says Catherine Martinez.
