Judging for this event was done by local musical maestros, information pills Robert Shearer, Rodney Clancy and Matt Charlesworth. Also Tessa Bremner, a renouned international opera, musical theatre and dance director and librettist helped with the adjudication.

Robert Shearer is “Albert Herring” September 28, 29, 30, 2012

Robert Shearer will be performing the lead role in Benjamin Britten’s “Albert Herring.”

ANU School of Music and The Street Theatre Present Albert Herring, cystitis a deliciously witty comic opera by Benjamin Britten,  28 – 30 September 2012.
“Country virgins, if there be such, think too little and see too much.”

One of Benjamin Britten’s most admired works Albert Herring is a musically inventive coming-of-age story. Unable to find a worthy girl to be crowned May Queen, a small town elects the unquestionably virtuous Albert Herring instead . This lively opera filled with comical characters charts the meek and stumbling Albert’s journey from a fearful and submissive son, to one who steps out into the world, and is transformed.

Melodies abound amidst colourful music of rich imagination, freshness and subtlety with a chamber ensemble of thirteen players led by Melbourne-based conductor Rick Prakhoff joined by The Street Theatre’s artistic director Caroline Stacey. Albert Herring features a mix of professional singers and students from the ANU School of Music and follows the popular and critically acclaimed presentation of Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas in 2010. 

Music by Benjamin Britten
Libretto by Eric Crozier based on Le Rosier de Madame Husson by Guy de Maupassant
Conductor Rick Prakhoff
