We are currently accepting submissions for our "Distant Flute" (Mozart's Die Zauberflöte), performed in German in virtual and socially distant settings. We are also accepting submissions for a future dated production of Verdi’s La Traviata (TBD Fall 2021).
Singers who are interested in joining the LOC in either or both upcoming productions should submit a short cover letter, resume and video performance of an aria in German, preferably from Die Zauberflöte, and/or an Italian aria, preferably from La Traviata.
Plans are underway for a fall 2020 highlights presentation of Die Zauberflöte, with the possibility of a live, in-person production in early 2021. Materials will be accepted through July 10, 2020. For more information and to submit materials, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
All roles are available, at this time. We pay a small honorarium. We anticipate a chamber ensemble for Flute and a more full orchestra for the later Traviata.
Presentation dates for Distant Flute are November or December 2020. We work towards an in-person performance of Flute in early 2021, pending NYS restrictions and further funding. Former LOC performers are encouraged to submit materials. We plan for Traviata performances in fall 2021.
