Opera Colorado sets auditions for fall production

Opera Colorado invites local singers to participate in upcoming chorus auditions for its 2018-19 season production of Verdi’s La Traviata.

Auditions take place Sunday, July 22, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Opera Colorado Opera Center, 4121 S. Navajo St., Ste 100, Englewood. Rehearsals begin Sept. 22, with performances of La Traviata running Nov. 3-11 at the Ellie Caulkins Opera House in the Denver Performing Arts Complex.

Opera Colorado will audition male and female voice types, with preference given to sopranos and baritones/basses. Singers should prepare two selections from art song, opera or musical theater repertoire to perform at the audition. Preferably, one selection should be in a foreign language. Repertoire should be memorized.

Singers selected for the chorus of Verdi’s La Traviata will need to be available for weekday evening and weekend rehearsals Sept. 22, Sept. 19 and Oct. 6 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.; Sept. 26, Sept. 28, Oct. 1, Oct. 3, Oct. 5 and Oct. 8, from 7-10 p.m.; and Oct. 6 from 2-5 p.m.

Chorus members are compensated with a modest stipend and two complimentary tickets to the production’s final dress rehearsal, and also receive an exclusive discount on performance tickets.

To schedule an audition, email auditions@operacolorado.org and include an updated resume with your audition request. Requests for auditions are on a first-come, first-served basis.
