Joe Austin and Libby Burgess are offering brand new one-day courses for professional and training singers. The workshops will focus on the development of character in arias, and how this plays out in musical and dramatic terms. Joe and Libby have worked together as Director and Musical Director for five years, on productions ranging from Britten’s The Prodigal Son and Mendelssohn’s The Homecoming for Ryedale Festival Opera to new work by Stephen McNeff at Tête à Tête Festival and the Linbury Studio. They regularly coach together and have run a residential course focussing on similar work.
See Workshop Opera for further details of the course.
