Christmas and New Year are behind us now, and we are getting into the full flow of things. People are finally coming off the piste and answering their phones again! In the PR department there have been some great developments, and we are hoping to hear from the Arts Council in the next month….
Very exciting news……*** We have our Don!***
Duncan Rock joins the cast as the leading role, and we are thrilled to have him onboard. Our handsome young baritone is well-acquainted with The Don, having taken the title role with the Welsh National Opera last year.
We also welcome Tom Albans as Arranger, taking on the challenge of sorting the vocal lines and the cuts needed. Tom is a young composer from Newcastle where he works at the university. He is a wiz on Sibelius and has a huge challenge in front of him…
Also joining us is Colin Pettet as Musical Director, and as he takes up the baton he takes control of the casting process and the planning of the orchestra and rehearsals. A very welcome addition to the team, Colin comes from the West End where he was deputy MD for Les Miserables.
Auditions have continued, and at the end of this wek we should almost be done. Here are a few photos of our Creative Team and singers in action at the audition sessions …
Tickets have gone on sale with Ticketmaster and the early bird prices are available now…. Just visit the website.
More exciting news to come next month. Meanwhile, do enjoy our second teaser and Cocktail film….
