Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor (sung in Italian) – audition details

We are preparing our Summer event and you may be interested in auditioning for one of the roles in Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti.

There will be at least two performances (and most probably four – proposed dates are 1/3/7/8 July 2022)- with our brand of mixed casting in which more than one singer will sing a role in the evening. This has been very successful in the past with our 2018 performances of L’elisir d’amore. The participants will all have the opportunity to learn and sing entire roles.

 

Scores

Performances will be on score in Italian. Soloists will be expected to sing in the chorus when they are not singing as a soloist.

Rehearsals

We rehearse on Thursday evenings (6.30-9.30pm) at St Etheldreda’s Church in Fulham (528 Fulham Palace Road, London SW6 6JF).

Fees

Our fees are currently £90 per term and that covers our professional staff expenses/venue hire etc – we are a volunteer–run charity and our motives are purely to provide performance opportunities for singers. Please see our website to further understand what opportunities we are offering.

Auditions

Auditions will be held on 3rd and 10th March 2022 at St Ethdreda’s Church, 528 Fulham Palace Road, London SW6 6JF. Please apply for a slot by email to operaintegra@gmail.com with “Lucia audition request and your name” in the subject line.

NB Due to the TfL strike, we are rescheduling auditions to 10th and 17th March – slots are still available. Secure one by emailing as instructed above.
