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.

Send your résumé and headshot to: Regina Opera Company, P.O. Box 150253, Brooklyn, New York 11215. You can also e-mail your résumé and headshot to us at info@reginaopera.org. Please put your name and voice type in the Subject line of your e-mail. Please do not send .zip or other compressed files.

Whether you mail it or e-mail it, 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 us at info@reginaopera.org 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.

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. Send your résumé to Regina Opera Company, P.O. Box 150253, Brooklyn, New York 11215, or e-mail it to us at info@reginaopera.org.

Musicians

Piano accompanists and orchestral players should e-mail us at info@reginaopera.org, or send a résumé to Regina Opera Company, P.O. Box 150253, Brooklyn, New York 11215. 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!
