Auditions for L’elisir d’amore (Summer Concert 7th July 2019)

As we are intending this to be a semi-staged concert, we intend to double/triple/quadruple cast the principal roles in keeping with our aim of allowing as many members to sing solo roles as possible.
Auditions will be held on 7 March/14 March in parallel with Spring Concert rehearsals at Coleville School (6.30-9.30) – other audition dates may be possible on request.

Audition pieces

As the opera will be sung in English, we would prefer auditions be sung in English, however we would not object if you prefer to do the audition in Italian. We will be using the Schirmer score for the concert. The audition pieces listed below give page references for the Schirmer score, but any English translation is acceptable as well. (*Pieces with asterisks may be substituted by an aria from another act for the same character.)
