Auditions: Opera-Lytes

Victorian One-Act Comic Operetta, "Mr. Jericho"


Opera-Lytes is seeking a tenor for the role of Horace in its fall production of “Mr Jericho,” a one-act comic operetta. Performances will take place September 18, 19, 25 and 26 at the Community Music School, on a double bill with “Trial by Jury.” Interested singers should send a short recording and resume, along with any questions, to lisab@operalytes.com as soon as possible.


The role:

Horace Alexander de Vere, Viscount Ramsgate, is an aristocrat, reduced to working as an omnibus driver, seriously jeopardizing his chances of winning the heart and hand of Winifred, daughter of Lady Bushey. Her ladyship is appalled by Horace's low financial status, but must concede that he is good looking.
