Dallas Opera – Chorus, Supernumeraries, Lightwalkers, Dancers & Actors, Solo Artists


Auditions for available “core” or “auxiliary” positions are held annually after the conclusion of our performance season – usually in late May or Early June. Classically trained singers should inquire by e-mail at

Applicants must include a resume and head shot in order to be considered. Applicants will be screened and those selected should prepare an operatic aria or art song in a language other than English. Italian, German, French or Russian are highly encouraged. Choristers may also offer an additional piece in English if they feel it shows their voice to better advantage. Choristers may be required to perform a rhythmic exercise, as well as sight-read, at the audition. A professional pianist will play for your audition.
