STANDARD: UPPER INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED

Our Baroque Opera Project returns in 2018 with Rameau’s Les Indes Galantes. We are delighted to welcome back Dionysios Kyropoulos, a specialist in historical acting and Baroque opera, for this production, which will feature scenes from this colourful and vibrant work (complete with an earthquake and volcanic eruption!). Our team of tutors is led by the musical duo of Julian Perkins and Judy Tarling, with Henrik Persson providing the all-important continuo tuition, and Andrew Radley, our vocal coach. We are seeking competent Baroque players with period instruments at A=415 (flutes, oboes, bassoons, trumpet, strings and continuo) and choral singers who are able to learn their lines before the course, and in early 2018 we will be auditioning singers – who must be of a professional standard – for the solo roles. The course begins at 4pm on the Monday and will culminate with a semi-staged performance in French in front of a public audience on the evening of Saturday 14 April.
