Verdi's Otello - still needs men's chorus!

So, one of the many plates I am currently spinning in the air is that of Chorus Master for the Harvard Lowell House Opera's production of Verdi's Otello. Aaaand...we still need men for the chorus. Lots of them. The Lowell House Opera is totally open to the community, and is eager, in fact, to have more community members participate in the production. Details are below - please forward to all the singing men you know!

The Lowell House Opera, the oldest continuously performing opera company in New England, is holding ongoing open CHORUS AUDITIONS for all voice parts for its production of Giuseppe Verdi’s OTELLO in March 2009. The work will be performed in Italian with projected English supertitles, with full costumes and staging, and with full orchestra. The production will include approximately 70 cast members, 120 orchestra members, and 50 technical staff members. Though the Lowell House Opera is based at Harvard University (Cambridge, Massachusetts) and provides valuable opera performance experience to Harvard students, it also includes many students and emerging professionals in the greater Boston area and features professional opera performers from the United States, Canada, and Europe. Channing Yu returns as Music Director and Sarah Eggleston returns as Producer; Anna Fischer makes her LHO debut as Stage Director; Allegra Martin will serve as the Chorus Master. Performances take place in the beautiful Lowell House Dining Hall, which is converted to an opera house for the production run. Rehearsals will take place February 2009. Performances are scheduled for March 4, 6, 7, 8, 11, 13, and 14, 2009. This is an all-volunteer production. No pay/no fee. There is no age limit. For more information, please contact Sarah Eggleston, Producer, at or 617-620-6077.
