Registration for W11 Opera 2019 is now open!
To take part in this year’s production of ‘Ever Young’ please complete the registration form at the bottom of this page and follow links at the end of the form to pay your subscription fee or to apply for a bursary *.
The full subscription price for the 2019 season is £500 per child. For those families that do not qualify for a full bursary, we are asking for a minimum payment of £300. Of course, any amount donated above and beyond the subscription price, will go directly toward production costs and bursaries. All subscriptions and donations are eligible for gift aid, so—when the time comes—please tick the box.
To create an experience of this standard it actually costs £1,300 per child. This includes: at least 70 hours of tuition for each child; voice coaching and direction with top opera professionals; costumes, props, and make-up; performance in a theatre with professional orchestral accompaniment in front of a large audience. As we are a not-for-profit charity, we rely on grants, donations, and sponsors—and, most importantly, volunteer support from parents, guardians, and friends—so that we may be able to provide bursaries and keep our subscription prices as low as possible.
*Last year we were able to provide full bursaries for over 25% of our cast.
Please make sure that you have looked at this year’s rehearsal and performance dates HERE before you register
Rehearsals will begin on Monday 9th September 2019 and continue throughout the Autumn term, culminating in performances on 7th & 8th December.
Please note: we are required to cap the number of participants at 80 as this is the limit that the theatre can safely accommodate on stage. Auditions are held for casting purposes only, and we always aim to include anyone who is committed to participate, but we may have to run a wait-list if our numbers exceed the allotted space, so remember to register early.
You MUST register by 31 August 2019!
