In January 2018, Island City Opera is proud to join with Valhalla Productions to produce a double bill of two one-act operas by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov seldom heard in America; Mozart and Salieri sung in English, and, Kashchey the Immortal sung in it's original Russian. Conducted by Lidiya Yankovskaya. Copies of the vocal scores of the Rimsky-Korsakov operas (in Russian) can be found here

In March 2018, Island City Opera will present Vincenzo Bellini's La Sonnambula, a rarely performed bel-canto gem sung in it's original Italian. Directed by Olivia Stapp. Conducted by Jonathan Khuner.

Although auditions for any of the operas can be accommodated on either day, those wishing to audition for principal roles for the Rimsky-Korsakov operas are requested to schedule their auditions for June 25th if at all possible. Likewise, those auditioning for principal roles for La Sonnambula only should try to schedule for July 1 if possible.

All roles in the Rimsky-Korsakov operas will be double-cast if possible. La Sonnambula will be single cast with possible covers. Singers auditioning for principal roles are requested to sing a prepared aria or song in each language of the operas for which they wish to be considered.

For people wishing to sing in our chorus for either or both productions, who have not sung with us before, we would be delighted to hear you at these auditions as well.

To schedule an audition appointment, please complete the form here. The audition will be no more than 15 minutes. An accompanist will be provided.

If it is impossible for you to audition on either of these dates, we can arrange a private hearing at a mutually convenient time and place, but, there may be a $25 fee.
