Auditions

We do not have auditions for the chorus, but we do run auditions on a per-opera basis for principal roles. We are currently planning for our next opera, Elixir of Love, and are looking for tenors to join us for the role of Nemorino. Additional auditions for this role will be held on the 13th November at the Music House at St Mary's College Crosby, L23 5TW - the same location as we have our regular rehearsals.

The audition piece for Nemorino is Una furtiva lagrima from p349 to p352 in the Schirmer edition. The opera will be performed in English, but the audition may be given in any language or translation.

There will be an Audition Fee of £10 for non-members, and all those who wish to perform must become members. Credit for the audition fee will be given to any singer who subsequently becomes a member. Membership fees are detailed here.

We welcome chorus singers without audition and will do our best to support those who have little experience of public singing. There is also a need for volunteers onstage, offstage, front of house and all areas of production.

To apply for an audition, or if you are interested in joining us in any capacity, contact us via email at operaviva@ymail.com or leave a message on our answerphone at 0151 558 1552
