First day of auditions for the 2014 Halifax Summer Opera Festival and Yorkshire Opera Workshops and here I am in New York City 🙂
Auditions will be at OPERA America’s National Opera Center at 330 Seventh Avenue, on the 7th Floor. We’ll be in Studio 710.
If you wish to sing for me today, there is still time to book — we have a few slots mostly in the early afternoon. APPLICATION FORM
See you soon!
For the first time the Halifax Summer Opera Festival and the Yorkshire Opera Workshop will be auditioning in Evanston, IL on Friday November 1, at Music Institute of Chicago’s Evanston East Campus at 1490 Chicago Avenue at Grove Street in downtown Evanston from 4 to 7 pm. One audition (and one $25 application fee) covers your application to both programs.
I’m particularly thrilled to be hearing auditions here because my mother was born in Evanston 🙂 Add that to the chance to hear great young singers from the mid-West and it’s a perfect trip!
The 2014 Halifax Summer Opera Festival will run from July 21 to August 17 and will feature productions of Handel’s Giulio Cesare in Egitto (with Baroque orchestra), Dvorak’s Rusalka (in Czech with piano) and Stephen Sondheim’s Into The Woods (with piano). 2014 marks HSOF’s 10th anniversary!
The 2014 Yorkshire Opera Workshop runs in England from May 11 to May 30 and will present Gilbert and Sullivan’s English operetta Iolanthe..
For more information about applying to the programs, please see our website.
HSOF would like to thank the great folks at the Prairie Theatre Exchange in Winnipeg for letting us hold our auditions in the Gendis Studio there.

We are almost out of audition slots for London, ON at this point, so we’re going to be adding another block of time on Tuesday November 5, probably from 2 pm to 5 pm, at New St. James. We’re just waiting for the confirmation of this, and expect this to be live on the forms and scheduler sometime tomorrow. If you wish to change an existing time on Wednesday to Tuesday, log back into the scheduling system and change away, or contact us for assistance.
