She is confronted by Smirnov, one of her husband's boorish creditors. They quarrel to a point where he challenges her to a duel and she promptly responds by producing two of her husband's pistols. They stare each other down but neither of them can pull the trigger as they find they arc in the power of something greater than their initial dislike of each other. B A C K G R O U N D NOTE The Bear described by its author, Anton Chckov, as a jest in one act, was written in 1888 and given its first performance in 1889 to remarkable popular and critical acclaim.

Mulholland June Iwagami Eva Gcrsbach Kaly Hedalcn Jennifer Legarc SYNOPSIS The Audition is dedicated to Opera. It concerns eight extraordinary sopranos auditioning for a position with an opera workshop. Each attempts to outdo the other by avoiding familiar audition material and by bringing wonderful unknown arias from previously "undiscovered" operas by such composers as Handel, Debussy, Puccini, Wagner, and Strauss. May the best woman win and may "Opera attain its rightful place/As the Queen of all the arts!" B A C K G R O U N D NOTE The Audition, as described by the composer is piece composed purely for entertainment. It is an aleatory opera which can be expanded or retracted based on the director's needs:. T h e libretto and music are by Martin Kalmanoff , who currently resides in New Y o r k , New Y o r k with an assist on the words of three musical numbers by Dr. S igmund Spaeth, Illica & Giacosa and Jay S. Harrison. DIRECTOR'S NOTE The Audition is ideal for opera workshops to accommodate young singers' first solo endeavours on stage. In working on The Audition we have all ventured into new territory and have learned a lot. For many of the singers it is their first time on stage and therefore this piece has been an excellent vehicle for them to get a good taste of life as a singing actor. W e have worked together to come out of our comfort zones and have realized that it is okay to be outrageous sometimes. Everyone's hard work and dedication is fabulous and it is an amazing feeling to be part o f such a fun and exciting production. O n a personal note, I would not be where I am now without the love, kindness and support o f my family, friends and mentor, Nancy Hermiston. I have no words to express my gratitude for their faith and confidence in me. Also a very warm thank you to all the performers, to our pianist Er ika Switzer, to our stage manager Suseh Nievares and to our technical staff. Please sit back, relax and enjoy The Audition. -Hussein Janmohamed P R O D U C T I O N Production Manager Technical Director Stage Manager Lighting Design/Operator Music Director Repetiteurs Window Unit Design Unit Construction Wigs Costumes Make up Poster Design & Illustrations Programme Publicity Photographs Video Production Nancy Hermiston Derek Mack Suseh Nievarcs Jeremy Baxter « Richard Epp Scott Knight Stephen Yorke Jocelyn Morlock James Bailey James Bailey Derek Mack Barbara's Hair Designs Nancy Hermiston Hussein Janmohamed Joanna Go Jennifer Ciresi Nancy Hermiston Diana Colquhoun Hussein Janmohamed UBC Opera Ensemble Norman Chan Dave Phipps Tom Rose ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS UBC School of Music: Voice Faculty, Office Administration Staff, Jesse Read, Isabel da Silva, Valerie Pusey, Frederic Wood Theatre: Jean Driscoll-Bcll, Sarah Marchand, Jancl Bickford, Shcri Milne, Mrs. Juliani, Craig Holzschuh, Vancouver Opera Association, Neena & Amir Janmohamed, Alan Corbishley, Stephen Yorke, UBC Botanical Gardens, Dunbar Lumber Supply, Shafique, Copiesplus, Al Karim, SPCA Thrift Store.
