Search for Local Singers (c) Louise Taylor

Opera Sunderland has created an opera for the City of Sunderland, with football at the heart of the story. Written by award-winning North East author David Almond and composer Marcos Fernandez, An Opera for Sunderland is all about local people taking part.

The opera will be performed in Sunderland Minster 27 – 29 November 2015, and we’re looking for local singers of all ages to take part. Budding performers don’t need to have previous experience; you don’t need to be able to read music or even to have performed opera before – you just need to love singing!

Come along to one of our free workshops and find out more; meet our experienced creative team and sing some songs from the opera.
