UPDATE Stefan's Premiere - September 19, 2011 - Yuki says that Stefan's parents were at the opera to see him perform. :) They are so nice. They had also gone to Canada to see him sing with Libera. Fan de LoK was at the opera also and said that Stefan did great and had many applause as did the other members of the cast. Congratulations, Stefan! :D
***Yuki has written a wonderful review of Stefan's opera debut! She got to meet him, his parents and the other 3 kids in the cast. Please obey her request to not copy the picture of the 4 kids. It sounds like it was an awesome night for the cast and the audience!
UPDATE September 17, 2011 - Yuki took pictures for us of her program. There are 2 pictures of Stefan.

UPDATE September 15, 2011 - This is a picture from the Osterreichischer Rundfunk site (Austrian Public Radio & TV). It says this is a picture of Julia Storm as Flora and Stefan Leadbeater as Miles. It also says that the opera is 90 minutes long, but has 16 scenes! Thank you to Fan de LoK for the link.
UPDATE September 14, 2011 - Our friend, Yuki, is in Vienna and says that Stefan is not performing in tonight's opera. He is sitting in a box seat watching it. He told her that he will be singing on the 19th and 24th. And HE IS GOING TO THE PHILIPPINES! :D
June 11, 2011 - AHHH! Congrats to Stefan Leadbeater!!! He will be going to Vienna, Austria later this summer! He and another boy won the role of Miles in the opera "The Turn of the Screw" by Benjamin Britten. It will be performed at the Theater an der Wien. It's a huge solo part for him! He has to be in Vienna for 7 weeks. This is so awesome, Stefan! We all know you'll do a great job! Hope you'll still be able to travel on Libera's Summer Tour also. :)
If anyone would like to go see the opera, the performances are September 14, 17, 19, 21, 24 and 27. I don't know how to tell which ones Stefan will be in. Tickets go on sale starting June 17 at 10 am. You can buy the tickets here.
Wow! This picture is from the theater's web site.
