Dance auditions are held on an "as needed" basis for productions which include roles for dancers. Dance audition announcements will be posted here. Dancers wishing to receive audition information by email should submit a picture, resume and cover letter to firstname.lastname@example.org. Submissions will be kept on file and dancers will be contacted about applicable audition opportunities.
Auditions for supernumeraries ("extras") are held on an "as needed" basis for productions which include parts for non-speaking, non-singing performers. LA Opera seeks supernumeraries with varying levels of experience according to the needs of the production. While some people who work as supernumeraries are professional actors or specialty performers (e.g. jugglers, acrobats, stilt walkers, actors trained in stage combat), others are opera enthusiasts who have no previous acting or performing experience but enjoy being onstage.
Supernumerary audition announcements will be posted here, and may also be posted on casting websites such as "LA Casting" and "Actors Access."
A supernumerary application form can be downloaded by clicking here. If you would like to receive audition information by email, please complete this form and mail it, along with a picture (and resume, if you have one) to the address listed on the form. Submissions will be kept on file and performers will be contacted about applicable auditions.
