Opera Magnifico welcomes you to apply for an audition for our 2023-2024 season! Opera Magnifico provides paid opportunities to emerging operatic artists (of all ages) and is based in North/Central New Jersey. We present Mozart through Verismo era operas and are proponents of the bel canto technique of singing.
Auditions will be held May 12-14 in Gladstone NJ. Our season includes Le Nozze di Figaro in November 2023 (rehearsal period beginning mid October) and Suor Angelica in April 2024 with another TBD verismo one act (I Pagliacci, Il Tabarro, Act 2 of Madama Butterfly are all titles under consideration). Productions will be performed with at least an orchestral chamber ensemble. All roles are available to perform or cover and payment is provided. While the exact stipend amount is not available at this time, it will be similar to what we have paid previously ($250-600). Artists local to the tri-state area are preferred, though limited host housing is available for select artists. Prescreening is required and auditions will be granted on a rolling basis. Application Deadline: April 25th 2023. There will be an accompanist fee due on the day of your audition.
