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 2018! 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.
Jason Barry-Smith and Narelle French team up once again to devise and lead a series of entertaining and educational workshop sessions. In June, you will be part of Opera Romance, an evening of stirring arias and duets. You will take to the stage with two of Australia’s finest operatic voices, soprano Antoinette Halloran and tenor Rosario La Spina.
Guest artists and favourite regular workshop presenters will guide participants and provide behind-the-scenes insights to the world of opera. These workshops are designed to gently challenge those who are only dipping their toes into the operatic world, whilst allowing seasoned performers to hone their skills as an upcoming professional singers.
Our sessions and final presentations are designed to be enjoyed by all who take part, and to complement and extend your existing lessons and choir activities. Meet with like-minded music lovers in the OperaQ Studio, the beating heart of the state’s own opera company and the place where all the magic happens for our mainstage productions.

We’ll be in touch asking you to tell us a little about your particular interests and experience.
