Announcement: Audition for performers for the production of "Strella"




The Greek National Opera announces an audition for performers for the production of Strella which will be presented in January - February 2023.

The audition will take place on Monday 31 October 2022 at the GNO Alternative Stage at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centrer (364 Syngrou Ave.) between 17:00 and 20:00 hours.

The audition is intended to select all three trans woman roles in the work (Strella, Mary, Vilma) and is aimed at trans women performers of any vocal category and age with acting and vocal skills. The final musical text of the performance will be adapted depending on the vocal profile of the performers selected. Familiarity with reading music will be helpful.

Participants are invited to perform a song of their choosing from any type of music and optionally an excerpt of an operatic or classical song. Moreover, they will be asked to interpret a short excerpt from the work which will be sent to them by email after the application to participate in the audition is submitted.

For the purpose of learning that excerpt, the GNO will provide participants who so wish with the option of a one-hour music preparation meeting with associates before Wednesday 26 October 2022.
