What could be better than rehearsing and opera in its own language? In May and June we are offering two workshops for singers, giving them the opportunity to work in either German (May) or Italian (June) with recognized experts in voice and staging.
Opera Workshop I, German Excerpts: Mon. May 5 – Sat. May 24
Opera Workshop II, Italian Excerpts: Mon. June 2 – Fri. June 21
Knowledge of German or Italian language is necessary. You must be in a university or upper level years of conservatory program. Non-UBC students will be required to submit a recording.
All stage direction of the opera excerpts will be given in the target language to give students the experience of the ‘stage’ language and total immersion in the target language.
Opera excerpts in May include selections from Die Fledermaus, Die Zauberflöte and Die Entführung aus dem Serail.
Opera excerpts in June include selections from Le Nozze di Figaro and La Traviata.
