Los Angeles Opera has several unpaid intern opportunities for the winter and spring terms. Interns will be assigned to projects in our Education and Community Engagement, Development and Marketing departments. LA Opera has a long standing commitment to provide meaningful and engaging learning opportunities for students and we feel that our winter/spring internships will be a continuation of our robust programs.
Education & Community Engagement: Projects include, but are not limited to, production assisting on the world premiere of Jonah and the Whale (a community opera), advancing our College Advisory Committee and researching/further developing evaluation processes. Some nights and weekends may be required.
Development: Project will focus on assisting the Research Manager in creating prospect profiles on potential donors through the use electronic resources and printed reference materials.
Marketing: Projects will include developing social media campaigns and communications strategies for ARIA, the LA Opera’s group for Young Professionals and assisting with market research project to analyze LA Opera’s current and future collaborators and partners. Some nights and weekends will be required.
Qualified candidates will be able to devote a minimum of 8 hours per week for a 10 week period. Recognizing that academics take priority, LA Opera is prepared to be flexible with regard to our interns’ schedules. While we believe that students interested in arts administration will derive the greatest benefits from our internships, we will give due consideration to students of all majors.
