Special Opportunity: Madison Opera Presents Pagliacci
We are excited to announce an additional opportunity that your singer may be interested in this season. As the official children's choir of the Madison Opera, we have been asked to choose 12-16 singers to perform in their production of Pagliacci (“The Clowns”), the second half of a double-bill that will be conducted by Joseph Mechavich and directed by Kristine McIntyre. This is an amazing opportunity for our singers to participate in a professional opera production with an incredible cast and production staff, learn great music, and sing on the Overture Hall stage!
The children's chorus has an important role in the production and it will require the ability to be focused and on-task at all times. The commitment will be significant but well worth the extra time. We are looking for a group of up to 16 treble voice singers with a maximum height of 5'4" and a mix of boys and girls of various ages.
The commitment: all rehearsals and performances are required.
This is the final schedule. Changes from last week's email are in bold.
