We are pleased to announce that applications to audition for our Youth Opera: Pay the Piper are now open! A full chorus of local young people will premiere the show at Glyndebourne in February 2022.
Pay the Piper is based on the story of The Pied Piper of Hamelin and is a collaborative piece written by our four Balancing the Score composers. Successful auditionees will perform as a chorus in the show, alongside professional singers and the Psappha ensemble to bring the show to life. Working with top opera professionals, rehearsals begin this summer and will include stagecraft, choreography and of course singing, to make sure they are ready for the performance of a lifetime.
The auditions will be held face to face, in small COVID safe groups at venues across Sussex. Audition dates and venues are on our website now - click through below for full details and to apply now.
