for talented singers & instrumentalists from all styles and genres (aged 15-25)

for Youth Opera 2019 A.L.I.C.E

A Laughable Iconic Cathartic Experiment

The Youth Opera 2019 – ‘A.L.I.C.E’ –  is based on Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking glass by Lewis Carroll. The adventures of Alice are translated into a journey of a singer or a musician in the deep world of sound and music, in the backstage of a mad dream and a cathartic experiment

Luigi de Angelis – stage director / stage design / light design, An Pierlé – Musical director and compositions, Brice Soniano – musical coaching and arrangements, Andrea Argentieri – assistant director and video, Lotte Stek – costumes

We are looking for Singers and instrumentalists from all genres and styles


Open spirit and fierce motivation
A need for the Ridiculous and a craving for Beauty

A slight hint of Madness and a Solid Earthiness combined
A Prudent Fearlessness and eccentric Modesty are much appreciated
Decadent Sobriety is a must!
We’ll need Adherents of the Cacophony of Silence

And Worshippers of the Inaudible Big Bang
Lyrical Beyoncés and Trash Can Opera Singers
Einsturzende Barokleute und Minimalistische Sirenen
Whispering Songwriters and Bulging Bombardon
Musical Kittens and Industrial Ravens

Worshipped Musicians and Absolute Beginners
Creative Note Knitters and Skilled Intensive Care Players
And least but not least
Fun Loving Criminals and Mischievous Maidens…

Preparation for the audition:

Presentation of a self-written or existing song or composition

inspired by or freely representing the world of Alice.

Instruments can be modern, pop, baroque, flutes, strings, winds, recorders, electronics…

These songs, together with the compositions written and played by An Pierlé will be the starting point of the creation of a new music theatre performance, of the Youth Opera 2019, A.L.I.C.E.
