Virginia Opera Supernumerary Casting Call
Virginia Opera announces an open casting call for supernumerary roles. An information and casting session is scheduled for Tuesday, August 12 at 7:00 p.m. and Wednesday, August 13 at 7:00 p.m. in the Rehearsal Hall at the Harrison Opera House. Participants should only plan to attend one session.
Supernumerary or “super” roles are non-singing, non-speaking roles of all ages, much like extras in film and television. Supers can play soldiers, townspeople, nuns, gypsies as well as many other important roles. Supers will share the stage with internationally-renowned artists and work with celebrated directors and conductors. A super's enthusiasm and cooperation is an important part of any operatic production. No experience is necessary.
We are currently looking for many types of supers, so everyone who is interested is welcome to attend the casting session. Attending the casting call does not obligate you to participate.
If you have any questions, please contact Alexandra Stacey via email at alexandra.stacey@vaopera.org or by calling 757-213-4541. See August 21 & 22 listing below for Virginia Opera Dance Auditions.
