If anyone is looking to purchase tickets to the performance by Opera Qld on Sunday 29th May in Roma, here is the link.

Opera Queensland invites the community of Roma to join a community chorus for our 2022 regional tour of The Sopranos.
The Sopranos takes the celebration of the bold and rebellious roles women have played throughout the history of opera on the road. Adapted from the new main stage production (QPAC, Concert Hall, March 29 – April 2) The Sopranos Regional Tour visits 13 communities across Queensland. Shining a light on some of the greatest dramatic moments in the repertoire, feel the power of women’s voices as The Sopranos Regional Tour invites us to experience these unforgettable characters anew.

What’s involved
Prepare to meet new people and perform alongside Opera Queensland’s renowned artists!
In the weeks leading up to the performance you have access to online materials to practice in your own pace before joining together with fellow community members for a rehearsal and performance.
On the afternoon of the performance day, your Regional Community Chorus will rehearse with operatic baritone and vocal coach Jason Barry-Smith to prepare for their moment on stage.

Regional Community Chorus members must be 18 years or older at the time of performance. Previous choral or performance experience is not required. Registration is open to people of all abilities.
