Open Stage Adult Workshops

If you’ve ever wanted to sing with your state opera company, here’s your chance. Now in their fourth year, OperaQ’s popular Open Stage workshops return with even more for you in 2017! This is a unique opportunity to experience the world of opera with OperaQ’s team of experienced artists, musicians and directors in the room with you to lend their expert advice and tuition.

ADULT WORKSHOPS

All participants will learn choruses and other ensemble pieces specially selected from opera, operetta, song repertoire and Gilbert & Sullivan. One session during each workshop will feature an hour’s solo vocal master class open to interested participants.

Each adult workshop program culminates in a public presentation at a special venue or event combining both evening and weekly intensive groups and featuring guest soloists from OperaQ.

In May, participants of the first program will join the cast of Jason Barry-Smith and Friends on stage in the Lyric Theatre, QPAC. And our second program will finish with a Christmas-themed celebration perfectly timed to kick off the festive season with favourite tunes for the whole family to enjoy.

We look forward to welcoming you into our Open Stage family in 2017.

WORKSHOP FEEDBACK

“Please pass on my sincere thanks to Mark for his part in the Puccini and friends workshop. It has been an honour and blessing to work with everyone from the Company. It was a wonderful experience.”

“I would like to let you know how much I have enjoyed the open stage programmes in which I have participated. It is a great privilege to work with the wonderful professionals who are very tolerant and encouraging and I would like to thank all associated with the programme and hope they will continue their outreach in this way. I hope to be back for more and will encourage friends to come and experience it too. ”
