Soloists: Opus Norden´s children and youths now have reached such a high level that we are prepared to present operas. These take a long time to learn and rehearse. We will make The Golden Vanity an opera by Benjamin Britten in May. In parallell we will rehearse Purcell´s Dido and Æneas, a one hour long opera written for a girl school in London in the 17th Century.

Ensembles: Opus Norden´s ensembles for kids, youths and adults often sing together. Purcell´s Dido and Æneas includes both a base and a tenor although it was written for school girls. In those days, the level of musicality among musicians, children and adults was very high in England and therefore this music is of a very high quality, hence also the difficulty.
My Fair Lady is an operetta taken up by "Rösttränarna". The course starts August 26th. In the end it will come out as a singalong concert like the one we made with Sound of Music. A lot of notes and texts will be studied! No stress. All ensembles who like this will take part in this work.
