|The OMTF extends a warm welcome to the City Lit Opera School||Apr 2015|
There has been opera at this popular institution for a number of years but this is a restructured training course which started in October 2014 led by Colin Baldy (Artistic Director) and Music Director Peter Crockford. A part-time course, it caters for singers and pianist/accompanists at different stages of their careers, either preparing to enter a conservatoire or honing their skills to enter the profession. The first end of term showcase took place in December 2014 and at the end of this summer term the school will perform full-length, fully staged one-act operas which will tour to the Maldon Festival in Essex. In the meantime there is a further showcase at the end of the Spring term featuring scenes from Cosi fan tutte, Die Zauberflote, La Fille du Regiment, Land of Smiles and Die Fledermaus.
The showcase takes place in the John Lyon Theatre at City Lit, London on March 31 and April 1.
