The Halifax Summer Opera Festival is Canada's friendliest and most supportive summer opera program, now auditioning for its 13th season! Spend four weeks in beautiful Nova Scotia rehearsing and performing a role in one of our three operas for 2017: Handel's Ariodante, Bizet's Carmen or Britten's Albert Herring. Open to singers of all ages and nationalities. In person auditions in Canada in November, distance applications accepted by digital upload until all roles are filled. Come and experience opera in a positive, collaborative environment where you're treated like an individual.
"Halifax Summer Opera Festival is an incredible and supportive program and you become part of this amazing family for the rest of your musical journey. It is a wonderful place to try out new roles or your first leading role with the support of the entire faculty. This festival not only challenges young professionals but provides a safe environment to grow as an artist and as a well rounded performer."
