CAN you sing up a storm? Then David Hardie wants to hear from you.

As musical director of Mozart’s sparkling romantic comic opera Cosi fan Tutte at Playlovers Theatre, he’s on the hunt for a variety of singers to fill a range of roles.

“This is a fully staged production with an orchestra and, importantly, it’s sung in English,” Mr Hardie said.

“This version in set in 1960s Las Vegas and draws on the time when the Rat Pack of Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin were cosying up to the mob and playing on their Italian ancestry.

“This theme will also draw on the parallels between Cosi fan Tutte's plot and the Rat Pack's misogynistic attitude to women.

“Above all, we want to emphasise the comedy in this opera and have some fun with it.”

A wide assortment of major roles, solo and ensemble pieces and various chorus parts are available.

Auditions are on a case-by-case basis and people need to bring CD or MP3 accompaniment.

Rehearsals start late March with show dates from July 13 to 28. For more details, call 0411 663 032 or email [email protected]
