Submissions Only: Solo Dancers

The Dallas Opera is accepting audition submissions for local, Dallas/Fort Worth-based SOLO DANCERS for the upcoming spring production of Romeo et Juliette by Charles Gounod.

Romeo et Juliette Synopsis:

The Montague and Capulet families have been feuding in Verona for hundreds of years. But when Romeo meets Juliet at a masked ball, they fall innocently, and tragically, in love. Shakespeare’s greatest love story takes on new life with Gounod’s rapturously romantic score. Its stunning melodies, grand choruses—and the Dallas Opera debut of Golda Schultz—will leave you wondering “Did my heart love till now?”
