We welcome our soloists and chorus to let us know if they are interested in any roles in these operas.

We will also be holding auditions for all parts for all three operas on May 16, 2019, at 7:00 PM. If you are interested in auditioning for the company, please email Maestro Gregory Ortega at gregortega@me.com. Include the role you’re interested in, your voice type, your resume, and your headshot. You must be available for all performance dates. Details of all rehearsals will be available in the near future.


Singers

Principals: Regina Opera auditions, which are held as needed throughout the season, are by invitation only. Send us your résumé and photo, and we’ll contact you if a suitable role is available. There is no audition fee. We provide the accompanist, although you may of course bring your own if you prefer. If you are chosen for a role, you MUST be available for rehearsals Tuesday evenings and Saturday afternoons, as well as for all performance dates.

Unfortunately, we are not in a position to pay our singers. But we provide valuable experience in standard repertoire and exposure to a wide audience (average 300 attendees per performance — each soloist gets two performances per production) in fully-staged productions with a 35- to 40-piece orchestra.

Email your résumé and headshot to Maestro Gregory Ortega at gregortega@me.com.

Please make sure your résumé indicates where you actually reside (city and state or country), and includes a contact phone number and e-mail address. Note to singers who live outside New York City: We cannot provide room and board.

Chorus: E-mail Maestro Gregory Ortega at gregortega@me.com to audition for our chorus. We are especially in need of tenors and basses. Choristers must be able to read music and be available to attend rehearsals on Tuesday evenings and Saturday afternoons, as well as extra rehearsals as needed.

Dancers: We are often in need of dancers. Please send your résumé to info@reginaopera.org if you would like to be considered for a future production.

Stage Directors and Conductors

Your résumé is always welcome; we will contact you for an interview if a position opens. And, let us know if you have something in production that you’d like us to see. We pay a nominal honorarium. E-mail your résumé to us at info@reginaopera.org.

Musicians

Piano accompanists and orchestral players should e-mail us at info@reginaopera.org. Payment is per service.

Technical and Other Staff

The backbone of any opera company is backstage. We are always looking for technical staff of any experience level (except as noted) for the following positions:

A nominal honorarium may be paid depending on the position and our budget. E-mail us at info@reginaopera.org to apply.

We also need volunteers to handle the box office, concessions, ushering, and cleanup — no pay, but you get to see fine opera for free!
