Armidale isn’t short of creative opportunities and Opera New England is just another avenue available for young, local talent to get involved in the arts.
The not-for-profit organisation hopes to bring a high quality of performing arts to the region by providing opportunities for young performers, director of the upcoming opera Susannah, George Torbay said.
“We’re working with young, talented voices who are very fine singers just about to launch their careers so we want to care for the voice and we don’t stress it out to much but still push them a bit,” Mr Torbay said.
The music in Susannah is based on folk tunes and conducted by Bruce Menzies.
The pair have also staged performances including Titanic, Blood Brothers and the critically acclaimed production of the Hatpin.
Four performances will run between January 19 to 22 with show times and tickets available on the Opera New England website at www.operanewengland.com.
Alternatively tickets can be purchased at Carrs Newsagency in Armidale.
