Teatru Manoel Youth Opera (TMYO) is inviting actors and singers for the below audition.

AUDITION DATE: Sunday 8th October 2017

DEADLINE: Monday 2nd October 2017

AUDITION REQUIREMENTS:
Auditionees are requested to present two pieces of repertoire: a) one operatic aria from the Bel Canto period and b) one Art Song. We suggest that the Art Song be chosen from Lieder repertoire to be presented to Wolfgang Holzmair in mid-November 2017. (NB: All auditions will be recorded for selection purposes.)

SESSION TIME: Every Saturday from 10:00 till 12:00.

CONTENT:
Sessions will kick off with the renowned Baroque specialist Marco Mencoboni on the 21st October between 15:00 and 18:00. The following sessions will include Lieder workshops delivered by Gillian Zammit, workshops by Denise Mulholland, and master classes with Wolfgang Holzmair in November.

January through to May will include workshops with various local artists and conclude with an Opera for children during the month of May. This Opera will be based around Bel Canto repertoire of Donizetti, Rossini, and Bellini.

Work for Corto Maltese will need to commence towards the end of May and we would encourage all TMYO members to participate in this newly commissioned Opera written by Monique Krus. This will be a very big event for TMYO and special guests, that will take place in the middle of September on the Teatru Manoel Main Stage.

ELIGIBILITY:
TMYO will once again be opened to Malta-based 18-35 year olds (born between 1983-2000).

MEMBERSHIP FEE:
Members are required to pay a fee of €200 and sign a Contract of Commitment.
