Diller-Quaile Youth Opera Performance
December 8, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Diller-Quaile Youth Opera provides a comprehensive experience in the preparation and performance of opera for school-age singers. Students rehearse and perform solos, scenes, and choruses from Baroque through Contemporary operas and staged works, with an emphasis on works specifically composed for young singers. Weekly rehearsals with a musical coach and a stage director focus on musical style, language, diction, character development, and stagecraft, leading to a performance at the end of the semester. An important aspect of Diller-Quaile Youth Opera is that students have the opportunity to be mentored by professional singers and to work alongside these singers in the chorus of a professional opera production. Repertoire assignments are based on age, level, and voice category. An audition is required.
