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

Michigan Opera Theatre is always looking for extras to perform in opera and dance productions. In the opera world extras are called Supernumeraries, or “supers” for short.

Supers are non-singing, non-speaking cast members (similar to extras in movies). In opera or dance, supers often play specific character roles, such as servants, waiters, innkeepers, executioners, townspeople, nuns, etc.
