(Tenor) Delivery boy at Maraczek's Parfumerie. His exuberance is infectious and commitment to his job remarkable. He is ambitious and adorable. Age: 14-16.

(Baritone) An established employee of Maraczek's Parfumerie, he resembles a hopeless romantic. Shy, intelligent, and soft spoken.

LTI will workshop two new work in the Spring of 2018: Ellen Reid and Roxie Perkins PRISM, associated with the Prototype Festival, and The Surrogate by Sky Macklay, associated with American Opera Projects.
The Surrogate will be performed with the Illinois Modern Ensemble on March 31st and has the following roles: Woman 1 (coloratura soprano), Woman 2 (mezzo-soprano), Uterus 1 (coloratura soprano), Uterus 2 (mezzo-soprano) and Doctor (Baritone.) Directed by Dawn Harris and musically prepared by Julie Gunn.
PRISM will be dramatically workshopped over a week by the composer/librettist/director April 23-28th. There is an extensive chorus part, which will be sung by the Opera Scenes class. There are two principal roles, also for women: Lumee and Bibi. The ranges are more flexible.
Singers interested in one of these roles should bring an aria or art song in English written by a living composer.
