Pittsburgh Opera will be holding its annual live audition tour in Cincinnati, New York City, and Pittsburgh. In addition, we will again offer video auditions. We encourage live auditions whenever possible, but welcome those who are unavailable or unable to sing in-person at one of our audition locations to apply for a video audition.
For live auditions, applicants should be prepared to sing, from memory, five (5) contrasting arias demonstrating French, German, English, and Italian language aptitude. Applicants are required to submit a repertoire list within the application, but audition repertoire may be amended at a later date.
Applicants who are granted a video audition will be required to record and submit two selections in one continuous video recording (without stopping the camera). Repertoire for video auditions will be selected by the singer. Guidelines for repertoire selection and video production will be provided.
Video applicants should apply in the same manner as live audition applicants, indicating “Virtual Audition” in the drop-down menus for location.
The deadline to apply is Monday, September 11, 2023. Applicants will be notified if they are granted an audition by Friday, October 20, 2023.
