The Halifax Summer Opera Festival is Canada's largest summer opera festival and educational workshop. We're a friendly, supportive program that focuses on empowering young artists with practical stage experience. We invite singers to apply for our 16th season, for available roles in Purcell's Dido and Aeneas, Blow's Venus and Adonis, Poulenc's Les dialogues des carmélites and Weill's Threepenny Opera. We're also offering an Art Song Intensive combined with chorus work in Carmelites. July 18 to August 16, 2020 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
“Halifax Summer Opera Festival is sort of magical. It’s an excellent place to work on your first role, or a larger role, or to try something new that you’ve always wanted to do! The productions are creative and full of ideas. The rehearsal process allows for performers to experiment dramatically and musically in a safe and fun environment: No matter where you are along your path, you are respected and appreciated for what you can contribute to the production. Thank you!” Nicholas Borg, baritone
