As Opera Saratoga is in a leadership transition this fall, all second round auditions will be by video once again this season in lieu of live auditions.
Opera Saratoga is once again working together with a consortium of other young artist programs, led by Houston Grand Opera, on a coordinated virtual audition process. Steps are outlined below to guide your understanding of this shared video audition process, and what is unique to Opera Saratoga:
Step 1: Apply to each program as you normally would. Applications are due Sunday, September 11.
Step 2: You will be notified if you have received a second round video audition by each company by Sunday, October 9. This notification will contain a link to submit a new aria list.
Step 3: Submit your aria list (the same list should be submitted for all programs), indicating your chosen “starter” aria, by Tuesday, October 11. For your video audition, Opera Saratoga will ask you to submit a list of five selections, including at least one 21st century aria in English, and one musical theater selection.
Step 4: You will be notified of the arias that have been requested from your list on Wednesday, October 19.
The consortium of companies will consolidate their requests so that each artist can submit the same video to each company.
Step 5: Record your new video audition and submit the video to each company via YAP Tracker by Friday, November 4.
THERE IS NO FEE TO APPLY TO THE YOUNG ARTIST PROGRAM AT OPERA SARATOGA
Please Note: All artists must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to work at Opera Saratoga.
