This fall, we'll be performing Gian Carlo Menotti's AMAHL AND THE NIGHT VISITORS, with several local performances. Roles in the opera may be double cast, depending on what I hear. Auditions will be held during the first week of class, and registering for class beforehand is not necessary. If you think you might be interested in being part of the show, just come to class! We meet Tuesday and Thursday from 3:30-5:15 in Hulsey Recital Hall. If you are cast, you'll have to register for the class before the drop/add deadline of August 24.
AUDITION REQUIREMENTS: sing something in English, with piano accompaniment. All pieces must be memorized, and may NOT be "a capella" or with recorded accompaniment. It does not matter if you've sung your piece before: if it's memorized and you're comfortable singing it, sing it again! If you are interested in the role of Kaspar, please sing "This is my box;" if you are interested in the role of the Mother, sing "All that gold," and if you are interested in the role of Melchoir, sing "O woman, you may keep the gold."
We will be performing AMAHL as a double bill with an Opera Gala, during which anyone who wishes may sing an aria, duet, or trio. This will give everyone in AMAHL a solo opportunity. These pieces must be chosen with your voice teacher, and will coach them during opera class. One last thought: this semester will be very low-stress and low time commitment. Relax and enjoy!
