Are you SUPER material?

The New Orleans Opera Association is looking for Men and Women to be extras (supernumeraries) in our upcoming season. You can pick one show or all three.


  1. A rehearsal commitment:

-Just a few evenings from Mondays – Fridays for blocking.

-Evenings during Tech Week

  1. Attendance at each Performance (Fridays and Sundays):

Barber of Seville – November 16, 2012 and November 18, 2012

Samson and Delilah – March 15, 2013 and March 17, 2013

Madame Butterfly – April 12, 2013 and April 2014

  1. A desire to wear period costumes and be in a world class opera in the nation’s First City of Opera!


There will be no singing or speaking required for this experience, your job will be creating the “world” of the opera.

Interested individuals should contact the Opera’s Director of Production, Chris Adams, at cadams@neworleansopera.org. Please include a photo of yourself if available and all contact information and potential conflicts. Don’t hesitate! This is fun! A chance to be in an opera and build your professional resume!

We hope you will do this for the experience as we like to engage community involvement but we will provide a $50 Honorarium to all participants as a show of appreciation.
