Casting - Principal and Supporting Roles

At this time, conventional auditions have not been scheduled. Most casting is done by referral.  We firmly believe that one's positive attitude and ability to work with others have a significant impact on the final results of an artistic product.  We view the typical audition process to be artificial and not necessarily indicative of what an artist can do on stage and how one relates to an audience. We prefer to view live performances (when practical). (Many of our artists have aided the company by participating in our frequent fundraising concerts). Alternatively, we will view video of a live performance. When submitting materials, in addition to a resume/headshot, it is helpful to include a list of arias/scenes/ensembles/roles you could have ready fairly quickly.  Conventional auditions will be scheduled if preferred by the artist. All artists will be paid for their work on full-length productions (minimum, travel expenses). Artists will NOT be charged for auditions or for serving our company with their musical talents.  (We do not prey upon desperate people with already low incomes!)


Opera Theatre of Montclair is currently building its opera chorus.  No operatic experience is required, but good intonation is very important.  Foreign languages will be taught phonetically, as needed.
