Young people aged between 9 and 18 years and who love to sing and be on stage have a fantastic opportunity to join this year’s magical production of Iolanthe at the Gilbert & Sullivan Festival in Harrogate. Come along and join a fantasy of fun, fairies and peers of the realm in this madcap comic opera. It’s guaranteed laughter all the way.
Rehearsals will be in Harrogate every day from Saturday 13 August to the performances on Saturday 20 August.
Festival Director Janet Smith said:
The Festival Youth Opera is always a highlight. We love it, and every year we are blown away by the talent and sheer energy of our young performers. Gilbert & Sullivan is the ideal introduction to opera and musical theatre.
Auditions for principals will take place in Harrogate in May. There are no auditions for chorus members.
The G&S Festival Youth Opera provides a fantastic opportunity for young people to learn about theatre, opera, singing and acting and is sponsored by the Festival as part of its active programme of youth initiatives. There is a nominal charge of £30 for participants.
