The Pirates of Penzance – Update
In view of the ongoing Covid-19 situation, and in the interests of the health and safety of its cast, crew, musicians and audiences, Brussels Light Opera Company has decided to postpone its production of The Pirates of Penzance to 19th-22nd May 2022; and its performance at the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival in the UK will now take place in August 2022.
The Production Team for 2022 remains the same, with Angela and Tony Lowe as Stage Directors, Lionel Bams as Music Director, and Barbara Bauer and Alex Just as Producers.
There is, however, still time to join us. We are able to take on board additional chorus members, and plan to hold more auditions before the summer break. For further information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our normal rehearsal venue is the De Kam Cultural Centre (172 Beekstraat, 1970 Wezembeek-Oppem), where we meet on Monday evenings (principals), Tuesday evenings (chorus and principals), and Sunday afternoons when the show gets nearer. Under our re-scheduled timetable, we plan to start traditional-style rehearsals (Covid permitting) at our rehearsal venue as from December 2021.
In the meantime, however, we are holding virtual music-learning rehearsals on a fortnightly basis. If you are considering auditioning, and would like to get a taste for the show, please send us an e-mail at email@example.com so that we can provide you with the link for the virtual rehearsals.
The Pirates of Penzance is one of the most popular of the Gilbert & Sullivan comic operas, and is full of catchy tunes, uplifting choruses and heart-warming melodies. A tale of tender-hearted pirates, feisty females, bumbling British policemen, true love – and lots of silliness – The Pirates of Penzance is opera at its most comical!
Keep your eye on the BLOC website for more details of our May 2022 production of The Pirates of Penzance!
