An Indiana Jones-inspired tale of adventure is heading to BREC on Saturday 15 August when Opera Australia's brand new production of The Magic Flute makes it way to Bunbury as part of the 2015 Regional Tour.
In conjunction with their tour, Opera Australia is also offering a Student Scholarship Program, open to senior secondary students in Bunbury.
The overall winners, deemed the four most promising students from across Australia, will receive the following prize: 2 x return flights from their nearest regional centre to Sydney (for recipient and guardian); 5 x nights' accommodation in a serviced apartment in Sydney for two; a meals allowance for each night in Sydney, in line with industry standard; music, acting and movement workshops with industry leaders; vocal coaching with Opera Australia's experienced coaches and repetiteurs; 2 x tickets to see an Opera Australia performance at the Sydney Opera House; an exclusive behind the scenes tour of The Opera Centre Sydney (where all the magic happens!) and the iconic Sydney Opera House; the chance to perform an aria for Opera Australia's Artistic Director, Lyndon Terracini at the end of their week's scholarship; and support from the Opera Australia team whilst they are in Sydney.
Opera Australia's Chorus Master Alex will be in Bunbury to hold auditions on Wednesday 12 & Thursday 13 August.Secondary-aged students that are interested in auditioning should email firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP as numbers are limited.
