Extras needed for operas

Being an opera extra with Michigan Opera Theatre provides the perfect “backstage” opportunity.  See how it all happens without any of the pressure the stars have!

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.

In addition to an unforgettable experience, extras receive free parking, 2 complimentary tickets to a performance, 2 passes for guests to attend the final dress rehearsal, and a small stipend.

The next opportunity to be an opera extra will be during our spring season with Tosca and The Summer King.
