• Young opera

    26th of January 2017 · tags:

    4 February the Danish National Opera will premiere the opera "Nothing" with a lot of young singers and musicians on stage and in the orchestra pit, including students from the Academy. The opera is based on Janne Tellers youth novel of the same title which is a solid part of the curriculum in primary schools. The opera is aimed at young people from 12 years and their adults and it is about what really matters in life. The composer is English / American David Bruce. More about the opera here.

    The Choir with a total of 40 singers consists of young singer talents from the National Opera’s three-year talent development program, TalentU, and by students from the Academy. The music is provided by the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra, which at this occasion is supplemented with 20 students from the Academy. The five soloist roles are sung by young professionals from Danish National Opera, but five of the Academy’s vocal students act as "covers", meaning they are ready to jump in if one of the soloists becomes ill.

    "Nothing" will be performed at the Concert Hall Aarhus 4, 5 and 8 February. Ticket reservation here. Also the Academy organizes a closed performance for an invited audience where the Academy covers takes over all five soloist roles. This is a unique opportunity for them to act in a fully professional setup, with full symphony orchestra. The setup in Aarhus is led by two lectures from the Academy, Robert Bøgelund Vinther (assistant staging) and Søren K. Hansen (conductor).
