Perform With Birmingham Opera Company
We are privileged at this current time to be working on a piece whereby
our leading actors are all black and are each playing characters of very
high status. I have had the pleasure of speaking with them in regards to
their personal journeys navigating this world and the stories are
phenomenal. I believe that everybody in our community should hear their
struggles and hardships alongside how they have managed to overcome in
an industry that is believed to be outside of our culture.
We can offer free workshops for your groups as part of our year-round
outreach work. There are also always opportunities for people to 'get
involved and there are still chances to be part of this year's
production, even with a lack of experience of singing or acting. All you
need to do is email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org to
register interest. Our first new participant's session is this coming
Wednesday 23rd June.
Wednesdays 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm will be the sessions for new participants. Venue will be disclosed upon confirmation
Production dates are as follows:
24th/25th July - ‘Put Together’ rehearsal including piano and dress
26th - 28th July - Tech rehearsals and full run-throughs with orchestra
29th July - Dress rehearsal w/public audience (6 pm call)
31st July/2nd/4th/6th/7th - Performance days
Working within the regulations so that all participants feel safe, COVID control will be in place and we ask all participants to adhere to wearing masks and gloves. There will be testing twice per week and the 2 metre distance regulation will apply. Participants will rehearse in smaller groups in order to minimise risk. We will constantly keep our COVID guidelines under review.
COVID testing is being strongly encouraged and we require all involved to take regular twice-weekly tests. Midweek testing will be determined by the groups you are placed in but we do ask that tests are taken on the morning of the 20th June (first rehearsal)

We really look forward to seeing you
