Follow a GVAI alumna on her way to sing for theaters and agents in Germany.
Well folks, we have an extremely exciting new voice to add to our GVAI blog! We have a former GVAI singer who is going on her first audition tour to Germany. To give completely honest and thorough feedback, she has decided to remain anonymous. So, let’s call her Susan! Susan is a post-grad singer with aspirations of becoming an international opera star. Thus, Susan is embarking on a 12 week trip to Germany where she will be auditioning for opera companies and agents. If time permits, Susan may be able to send weekly updates to our GVAI blog! If you are interested in flying to Germany for auditions, you’ll definitely want to keep checking in to read up on her adventure and get the raw details - good and bad. Without further ado, I present to you Susan as she prepares for her trip.

In Germany, there are around 126,000 theatre productions a year. If that sounds impressive, just wait. Over 35 million people go to these performances in that year span! Holy Brünnhilde, that’s a lot of people! There are roughly 140 publicly funded theatres and 220 privately funded theaters. Unlike New York, USA and Paris, France, opera houses are not all concentrated in one city. There are opera houses dispersed all throughout the country so that everywhere you go, you will be able to attend a production.
