Singers wanted to be part of the choir in the opera Orfeo & Majnun, an interdisciplinary project in two parts which connects the Middle Eastern legend of Layla and Majnun and the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice. Orfeo & Majnun is being staged in Malta for the first time at the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta on Friday 19th and Saturday 20th October 2018.
This project is calling for a choir of 80-120 singers which will bring along young and old, female and male individuals from different communities across Malta and Gozo.
Orfeo & Majnun will be staged for the first time at La Monnaie in Brussels in June 2018. In Malta, the cast for the performances will consist of a core team of foreign artists which will include also 4 singers, 9 musicians from the Mediterranean Youth Orchestra, Bassem Akiki as conductor and a production team lead by Airan Berg and Martina Winkel.
Interested singers are encouraged to send a singing CV plus a headshot and also a 2-3 min audition video singing any song of your choosing, which best demonstrates your vocal agility, skills and range. This has to be sent to [email protected]
Orfeo & Majnun is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
