Our 2020 Youth Opera is Schubert's The Friends of Salamanca, a light-hearted singspiel about the amorous adventures of students united by friendship. Our Youth Opera production will mark the Australian premiere of this Schubert rarity.

Young singers aged 15-25 are invited to audition for either a solo or chorus role. Auditions will be held on Thursday 12 and Saturday 14 March at Victorian Opera, Horti Hall, 31 Victoria Street, Melbourne.

Audition registrations will open at 10am on Monday 3 February and close at 5pm on Friday 21 February.

The rehearsal period for The Friends of Salamanca will run from Monday 31 August to Thursday 24 September. Further information about rehearsal times will become available closer to the audition registration period.

Performances will take place on Friday 25 September and Saturday 26 September.

Please note, as this work will be performed in its original German, auditionees must prepare one work in German for their auditions.
