Opera Coast - an operatic holiday with a difference
If you wish to sing in the chorus there is no audition, but singers must turn up with prior knowledge of the scenes being performed and to be able to sing from memory. If you wish to sing a solo role, then there are auditions (further information from OperaCoast's auditions page).
The music director for the workshop is Gregory Rose, the music director of the Jupiter Orchestra and professor of conducting at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. The director is Susannah Water, who will be directing Orlando Gough's new youth opera, Imago, at Glyndebourne this year. The pianist is Nigel Foster, founder of the London Song Festival.
Sounds like a delightful way to spend a weekend on the Sussex coast, exploring one of 20th century opera's masterpieces from the inside.
Further information and booking details from the Opera Coast website.
