Thank you for your interest in auditioning for LA Opera. You will find current audition opportunities at the bottom of each section below:
Dancers and Supernumeraries
Dancer and supernumerary auditions are held as needed. Check this page for future audition notices.
Applications for chorus auditions for the 2019/2020 season are not being accepted. If you are interested in auditioning for the 2020/21 season, please check here for more information to be posted in early January of 2020.
Professional singers with training and experience with operatic literature and performance are encouraged to apply. Each production of the season is cast individually. There are no full-time positions in the chorus.
If selected to audition, singers will be asked to prepare two selections from the standard operatic repertory. Each piece should be in a different language. An accompanist will be provided for all auditions. Singers may also be tested on their musicianship (sight reading and tonal memory, i.e. the ability to sing back a melody played on the piano) and lyric diction in French, German and Italian. At the audition, singers will also be required to submit paperwork indicating their availability (based on a preliminary rehearsal and performance schedule) and their ability to fulfill special requirements (as listed for each production).
