With heavy hearts the Alcina's Monsters Team has made the decision to postpone our opera workshop and performances yet again. We are proud to have a high calibre international coaching team; unfortunately, there is still a high degree of uncertainty regarding international travel and quarantine under the Scottish Government's Covid-19 regulations. Under the current circumstances, we would have to compromise the quality of the student experience in every regard.
However, rather than risking having to cancel our programme at very short notice, we are planning to run a reduced programme of preparatory workshops this summer during our original dates, and we have made the decision unanimously to set the new performance dates for the full programme as follows:
Workshops in Summer 2021
Strictly following the government guidelines with regards to speaking, singing, and social distance. These workshops will be offered both online and for live participants in Aberdeen:
Monday 28 June 2021 - Thursday 1 July 2021
- Italian Language Coaching
- Acting and blocking
- Monster Building Parties (Set, props and pizza)
Opera programme in Summer 2022:
Saturday 9 July 2022 - Sunday 17 July 2022
In recognition of the adverse circumstances and consequent loss of opportunities faced by our recent graduates, those who have auditioned for roles will keep these for the rescheduled production. However, we would also like to re-open auditions in order to double-cast all of the roles. Thus, all students are invited to a new audition, even if they have already won smaller roles.
Please send a short video recording by Monday, 31 May 2021. Chose something that you feel shows off your voice to best advantage. A bit of recitative would be appreciated but is not essential. We are looking forward to receiving your submissions via email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Pre-sales for tickets will be updated soon. Please keep your eyes open for further announcements on www.alcinasmonsters.com and on our Facebook page.
