We are accepting auditions for the Hawaii Opera Theatre Mae Z. Orvis Opera Studio!
HOT Orvis Opera Studio runs from June 2018 until May 2019 and includes workshops, masterclasses, vocal coaching, run-out performances, concerts, and more.
This year alone, we've welcomed the following masterclasses with: Jill Gardner, Jake Gardner, Tim Shaindlin, Curt Olds, Jenni Bank, Lee Bisset, Brian Deedrick, Timur, Neil Semer, Andrea del Giudice, Natalya Matyusheva, & Melody Moore.
And workshops including: Website creation, Russian Diction, Comedy and Singing, Finding One's Authentic Voice, New Music, Movement, & Singing with Intention.
No age-limit. And we have multiple levels within the Studio from singers that are wanting a career in opera, to those who are looking to study more and improve their singing, to those who truly are looking simply to explore a bit more.
Singers will be able to work on many genres of music including:
Opera/Musical Theatre, Art Song, Modern/New Music, and more.
Come and join the HOT Staff - Maika'i Nash, Erik Haines, Eric Schank, & Blythe Kelsey!
Admittance in the program requires participation in one opera chorus per seasonal year. Next year, we welcome to the stage, Romeo & Juliet, The Marriage of Figaro, & La Traviata. Regular participation in the program's studio & masterclasses, workshops, events, etc. are also expected.
Please bring 3 contrasting songs/arias to sing in 3 languages. If you need help with repertoire, please feel free to contact Maika'i Nash.
