Greater Worcester Opera

Auditions - The Mikado and 2019 season

GWO is auditioning for our June 2019 production of Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado, as well as summer concerts.  Audition will consist of one verse of an aria from any G&S opera, or one verse of an opera aria in English.  There will be cold readings from the script during the audition (sides provided).  Accompaniment will be provided. Mikado rehearsals will begin mid-April and performances run from May 31- June 9. For rehearsal and performance details, please read this document. 

GWO singers who have performed in past shows and wish to perform in the ensemble need not re-audition (please send email indicating interest to [email protected]). Anyone seeking a lead role must audition.  Please note that some audition slots are designated for "men only." 

In cases of equal talent, preference will be given to singers living in the Central MA area or those who have experience with our company; however, we encourage all interested singers (especially men) to audition for our directors.

GWO's mission statement includes the following: GWO strives to provide high quality, entertaining operatic productions to the audiences of Central MA, while at the same time providing valuable performing opportunities to the area's wealth of local, professionally-trained singers .  We seek well-trained, experienced singing actors for our productions.  If you have any questions about this, please send an email to [email protected], and we'll be happy to talk with you.

We ask that all singers who sign up honor their commitment, as there may be a waiting list after slots are filled.  If you cannot attend the audition please remove your name as soon as possible to give another singer a chance.  Thank you in advance for your consideration. 

Please print and fill out this audition form and bring it to your audition.

Location: Loring Auditorium, 65 Briarwood Circle, Worcester, MA
