Thanks for your interest in auditioning for a principal role in Space Opera 2005. We would like you to prepare to sing a particular song for each role you are auditioning for, and I'll hear you sing it at your audition (we will probably be taking a video of you singing it as well, just so that we can remind ourselves of what you sounded like). For each role you are auditioning for, please download the following files:
|Role||Song||Sheet music||Live MP3||Orchestra MP3|
|Han||I'm the Best||mp3||mp3|
|Jabba||Jabba Jive||pdf (in Bb)||mp3 (in F)||mp3 (in F)|
|mp3 (in G)|
|Obi-Wan||Anakin||mp3 (in E-min)||mp3 (in D-min)|
|mp3 (in E-min)|
|R2-D2||In the Wilderness||mp3||mp3|
For Obi-Wan's and Jabba's songs, the accompaniments are provided in 2 keys. Download them both and practice with whatever fits your range better. Please note that the sheet music for Jabba is in B-flat, while the accompaniments are in F and G (the song was originally written for a high baritone, but later was deemed better sung by a child alto). I don't anticipate that this will be a real problem for anyone, but let me know if it is.
Alternatively, you can obtain from us the sheet music and an audio CD. Ask for details when you sign up for your audition.
