Weekly Tips for Performers

Musical Theatre Singers – Finding New Repertoire

1. There is fantastic NEW music out there, and it has never been easier to find.  Your Rep Folder will always be more interesting with a couple of fantastic songs written in the last 10 years.

2. The website www.newmusicaltheatre.com is an absolutely fantastic resource, putting new composers and their work at your fingertips.

3. Find the albums released by current, younger generation musical theatre artists;  six-time Tony Award Winner Audra McDonald’s first album ‘Back to Paradise’ was dedicated entirely to new writers. Other artists currently working are making a point of performing and recording the work of new writers alongside that of more established composers. Check out albums by Anika Larsen (‘Sing you to Sleep’), John Barr (‘Different Corner’),  Gemma Atkins (‘Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow’) and Lauren Kennedy (‘Here and Now’) for a start….

Attention Opera Singers!

1. The website www.operabase.com is an astonishing resource; make use of it.

2. If your voice is still developing and you’re unsure of what fach to be looking at, Operabase can help you find out who is singing what repertoire and which roles are being cast with which voices.

3. When looking for representation Operabase can tell you which artists are managed by which agencies; very helpful for getting a sense of how agents and managers work with regards to territory and what level they’re working at.

4. Operabase also tells you what repertoire a house or company is planning.  If you see on their schedule that a particular company, over a two year period, has staged zero baroque opera, then you will know not to go to that house with baroque repertoire if auditioning for them.
