Winter Opera School
On July 1st in Drummoyne Sydney, singers began working with Ghillian Sullivan and co-coach/pianist Norma Marschke on repertoire including Rigoletto, Street Scene, The Magic Flute, Iolanthe etc.
Singers worked on their repertoire, choreography and costumes for 5 days and on the night of the final day, performed all they had learned to an audience of friends and family.
Much fun was had, a lot learned and new friendships formed.
Thank you to all those singers who participated - it was a real pleasure!
