BE AN EXTRA
Being an extra with Michigan Opera Theatre provides the perfect “backstage” opportunity. See how it all happens without any of the pressure of the STARS! Michigan Opera Theatre is looking for extras in our upcoming production of Tosca.
Typical supernumerary work
Supernumeraries are usually amateur character artists who train under professional direction to create a believable scene. They almost become part of the scene and give a sense of credibility to scenes where crowds, court assistants, lackeys, peasants or a variety of period characters are needed.
At the audition the director will explain the super roles as they apply to the opera and choose those potential supers they feel would fit the role (and the costume) the best. Auditions are VERY informal and only require your attendance.
In addition to an unforgettable experience as an extra you will receive free parking, 2 complimentary tickets to a performance, 2 passes for guests to attend the final dress rehearsal, and a small stipend.
