Experience Opera in a New Way – As Michigan Opera Theatre Extras!

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

If you are interested in participating in becoming an extra or ‘super’ and can attend the audition, contact me for audition details – elizabeth@motopera.org.  That’s all it takes!  One email and you could be a part of the Michigan Opera Theatre’s 2015 Season!  Please consider auditioning if you are available.  We typically do not have enough people show up for auditions!

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, extras receive free parking, 2 complimentary tickets to a performance, 2 passes for guests to attend the final dress rehearsal, and a small stipend. Be advised that you must to be available for ALL technical rehearsals and performances. Staging rehearsals are negotiable.  When you contact me, please let me know of any conflicts you may have with the staging rehearsals.
