Surrey Opera is looking for some black singers/actors for its production of The Life to Come by Louis Mander and Stephen Fry – based on the short story by E. M. Forster.
Performances will be in September and October, and rehearsals in September.
The music is straightforward and tuneful, so basically easy to learn.
So wants to recruit about 12-ish ‘adult looking’ male and female singers/actors to make up a small chorus. There may be some expenses available.
Surrey Opera hopes the production will get a lot of media attention.
Jonathan Butcher, Surrey Opera’s Director says:
‘Do you know anyone who would be suitable? This now quite an urgent matter!
It should be an amazing experience do anyone who joins us!’
Jonathan can be contacted at 020 8654 9306 or 07762 560537.
Jonathan was the Director the year long Samuel Coleridge-Taylor Festival in Croydon in 2012, backed by Surrey Opera, which performed the composer’s previously unperformed opera Thelma.
