Due to popular demand, the Brooklyn Music School Opera Workshop has been reinstated after a seven-year hiatus. Alburtt Rhodes, Chairman of the Brooklyn Music School Vocal Dept, will be the main instructor, with 30 years of teaching, 40 years professional experience. Previous Opera Workshops resulted in the productions of "Don Giovanni", "Cosi Fan Tutte", "La Traviata", "Giulio Cesare", "Le Nozze di Figaro" and "La Cenerentola".
"Trial by Jury" is a one-act comic English-language light opera about a bride who sues her fiance in court for breaking his promise to marry her.
Baritones for the "judge" part are especially needed!
The 2009 performances of “Trail by Jury”, featuring the Workshop members, will be April 30–May 3.
Note, if admitted to the Workshop, total tuition for chorus members will be $75 each and major singing parts will be $200. Workshop includes ensemble, small group and individual coaching. These one hour–long workshops will meet weekly until March, at which time rehearsals will require more classes.
Tuition must be paid in full at time of registration.
