About the Chorus

The Chorus consists of 46 professional singers and performs in most of our opera productions as well as concerts. Members of the chorus are regularly used for solo parts and are occasionally given the opportunity to cover lead roles. We consider drama and movement to be important elements of the chorus' work.
