There are limited openings for the 2022-23 season, which will offer employment to choristers in The Barber of Seville (16-18 men only) and Madama Butterfly (32 singers SATB). Singers should present a memorized classical selection (preferably an aria) in a foreign language. A second selection is welcome but not necessary. Candidates may also be asked to sightread or to read a short line of text from a standard opera. An accompanist will be provided, or you may bring your own pianist.

Audition slots will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
