October Subscribers Update

National Opera “In the Studio”

We invited five local singers of varied experience to take part in the first National Opera “In the Studio” series in May this year. Sarah Darnley-Stuart, Emma Mauch, Katrina Wiseman, Thomas Nolte and Madeline Anderson performed alongside pianist Ella Luhtasaari for Peter Coleman-Wright AO and took instruction and critique from him on a range of technical and artistic elements. 

Our National Opera subscribers, you will receive a new episode each fortnight. Subscribe at www.nationalopera.org.au

What makes “La Clemenza di Tito” COVID-Safe?

The audition process for “La Clemenza di Tito” has closed and the panel now has the difficult task of casting this exciting production.

To ensure the safety of the community, our artists and creatives as well as present a viable opera, we have prepared a COVID-Safe plan to cover all elements of our April 2021 production of “La Clemenza di Tito”.

The plan covers all aspects from rehearsals, staging, orchestra, backstage requirements, as well as ticketing allocation and our audience. That means the performances will be in a semi-staged concert style performed at the ANU School of Music’s Llewellyn Hall. The venue allows our artists to keep a safe singing distance while performing, in addition to providing ample distancing for our audience. This will enable us to achieve maximum capacity, while adhering to any restrictions which may be in place at the time.

By taking this approach we hope to be able to proceed regardless, but again this will be subject to the advice of ACT Health at all times.
