It’s all part of Project Puccini, which will give hundreds of Queenslanders the opportunity to perform in the chorus, alongside OperaQ's principal artists and Queensland Symphony Orchestra musicians.
The Project Puccini team will travel more than 21,000 kilometres over a six-month period from Brisbane to the Gold Coast, Toowoomba, Ipswich, Fraser Coast, Rockhampton, Mackay, Townsville and Mount Isa.
The La Bohème tour will run from July to September 2014.
OperaQ has employed a chorus master and rehearsal coordinator from each region and will work with local arts centres, theatres, councils and sponsors to extract the highest standard of performance from budding local artists.
All participants will undergo an intensive 10-week development program to improve music and drama skills—with added benefits of establishing new social and creative networks.
