Gilbert & Sullivan’s "Iolanthe" Auditions

Category audition: Film / TV / Cinema 11:02 pm

Gilbert and Sullivan Austin announces auditions for its June 13-23 Grand Summer Production of “Iolanthe” by W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan (9 Performances – June 13-23). GSA Artistic Director Ralph MacPhail, Jr. returns for his 18th season. Jeffrey Jones-Ragona, returning for his 22nd season as Music Director, will conduct the Gillman Light Opera Orchestra. Bill Hatcher returns as Production Manager.

Those auditioning should memorize a song from Gilbert & Sullivan or something similar (aria or Art Song, English preferred) that will show their voice and range to best advantage. It is mandatory to provide a copy of the music for the accompanist. Please note that no unaccompanied (a cappella) or self-accompanied auditions will be heard. Although an accompanist will be provided, singers are welcome to bring their own if they wish.

About “Iolanthe”
“Iolanthe; or, The Peer and the Peri” is a fanciful comedy that presents a topsy-turvy love story involving fairies and members of the House of Lords – a political fairy tale that only Gilbert & Sullivan could conceive, and which will delight Austin audiences of all ages.

First performed in 1882, “Iolanthe” is the seventh of fourteen operatic collaborations by Gilbert and Sullivan. It is universally regarded as one of Sir Arthur Sullivan’s most beautiful scores – a high water mark in terms of music, wit, cleverness, and color – with incredible choruses, wonderful solos and orchestration beyond compare. Peers, British noblemen and honorable members of Parliament encounter Peris, lovelorn fairies from a golden glen – a collision of powerful mortals with feet of clay and immortal beings wielding magic wands. The result – havoc is wreaked in the House of Lords!
